2017 has just begun and it’s already starting on a high note!
The Hollywood sign in Hollywood, California, was vandalized this Sunday as New Year was coming to read “Hollyweed”.
The news quickly spread out on social media as people are posting and reposting the new “Hollyweed” sign.

According to a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department, this was a New Year’s prank done by someone who managed to climb at the top of the mountain. The whole act of vandalism was apparently caught by the surveillance cameras and LAPD is investigating the case.

The change of the sign was made after the voters of California approved recreational Marijuana, so that has definitely something to do with this act.
