The Hollyweed sign

In 1976, the famous Hollywood sign in California, US was altered by college student Danny Finewood and his friends to read Hollyweed. The reason for this that Californian law just softened the laws on the use of marihuana and -of course- just because they could.

After this, some legislation was passed to protect the Hollywood sign from vandalism. Nevertheless, the Hollywood sign has been changed into many other shapes. An interesting side fact is that in 1978, nine people/organisations donated  $27,777.77 to restore each of the nine letters. Among them were rock legend Alice Cooper and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.
