The online collective known as Anonymous has announced a plans to turn April 20th, a day celebrated by many as "National Marijuana Smoking Day," into a day of political protest in order to push for the legalization of marijuana.
Operation Cannabis already has a blog, a Twitter hashtag (#opCannabis), and a Facebook page with 950 fans. Anonymous is asking anyone who supports Marijuana legalization to make their social media profile pictures and avatars green on April 20th.
