On New Year's Day, residents of Hollywood awoke to see that some creative vandals had changed the iconic "HOLLYWOOD" sign to read "HOLLYWeeD." While nobody has taken responsibility yet, people are getting quite the chuckle from the antics.

First hollyweed and now Ariana Grande is going to be in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. It's like 2017 just went and burned the rulebook.— Mr. Swoon (@MrSwoon) January 2, 2017
The vandal used a black tarp to cover the letters and has not yet been identified. If found, he could face a misdemeanor trespassing charge.
This is not the first time the sign has been vandalized to say "Hollyweed." In 1976, an art student also modified the sign in a similar manner. He received an "A" for the stunt.
California was one of four states to vote to legalize recreational marijuana this past election day.
