This stunt comes less than two months after voters make recreational marijuana legal for adults in the state. City surveillance cameras showed a person dressed in black around 3 AM Sunday.

This isn't the first time the Hollywood sign was changed to Hollyweed. The landmark sign was defaced on New Year's Day in 1976, when marijuana was decriminalized in California.
