In 2012, the notoriously famous hacktivist group, Anonymous, was named one of the most influential people in the world by Time Magazine. Now this infamous group is turning it’s attention and focusing all of its superhero energy on waging a war against pot prohibition. Determined to unveil the mask off of marijuana, once and for all, Anonymous has launched a full-scale online campaign, dedicated to freeing weed. Dubbed Operation Cannabis [#OpCannabis], the program officially launches today, 4/20 2012, although Phase 1 seems to be in full effect according to SF Weekly, as a number of specific anti-marijuana websites have been already hacked and attacked.
In the recent OpCannabis video posted to YouTube, Anonymous strikes out against the damnable enslavement of marijuana, by the true power players behind the scenes, the pharmaceutically pushed politicians, and the greedy government giants, pulling the strings playing puppeteer. They have appealed to all cannabis crusaders and champions of this cause to show their support by transforming their social media channels “420Friendly” with green inspired profile pictures, and timeline banners to commemorate this homegrown holiday. It’s the hope of Anonymous that this collective outing will mimic the power of the SOPA blackout.

“If you give a man a fish you will feed him for a day, but if you teach him how to fish you will feed him for a lifetime.”
In an age where disease is as prevalent as poverty, the only opportunity humankind has of regaining their strength and mastery is through the power of education. Marijuana is a medical marvel that deserves glory and acknowledgement as such; not a gateway drug to damnation. Anonymous is determined to denounce the lies and deception surrounding the curative potential of cannabis, and adamant to reveal the real reason why reefer is a Schedule 1 narcotic, “…it is an easily grown plant that can be grown freely, by anyone…” Taking this astounding revelation into consideration, as well as the prodigious facts that not only can hemp heal the nations, but it can also be processed into fiber for clothing, manufactured into building material for housing, and further still, produce bio-fuel to power the earth, all while feeding the hungry with one of natures most nutritional forms of food. Its plain to see why the corporate captains in charge are so hell-bent on keeping this lid tightly locked onto Pandora’s box. With so much potential in one mere plant, not only are trillions of dollars at stake but so too is their control over our humanity.
This fight for 420 is our fight for our freedom. Join Anonymous and boldly follow down the rabbit hole to our future of freedom from enslavement.
Anonymous’ full state statement regarding OpCannabis
Dear Citizens of the World,
For far too long cannabis has been oppressed by big corporations, big pharma and governments when it could be benefiting all of mankind on many different levels. We have heard and we have watched your government lie and deceive you on all the dangers of cannabis. Show support by making your profile pictures green this April 20th on your social network profiles.
OpCannabis phase 1, initiated. We are Anonymous…..Expect us.
Attention individual people, governments, companies and fellow Anons!
We are Anonymous and we have an important message for you:
Plato said that it was ok to tell a lie ONLY if it truly benefits all of mankind. Plato called this lie the “noble lie.” For far too long there has been a lie that has been perpetrated but it is neither noble nor does it benefit all of mankind, actually quite the opposite… the cannabis plant is one of the world’s oldest and best medicines that has been known as beneficial for thousands of years!
It can replace many medicines and can be made into many different things such as plastics and fuels and paints etc. The bounds of this plant are limitless, we ALL are effected by illness such as cancer, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, chronic pain, mental illness, alcohol abuse and a myriad of other physical and mental disorders. Cannabis had been proven over and over to help or even cure and reverse the effects of these diseases that will affect us all at some point in our life!
Yet it is kept from the people who need its curing powers by governments, big corporations, by big pharmaceutical companies because it is a threat to the money they make! They make more money off you being sick so they do not want you to have a cure, these people do not truly care about your wellbeing only the money they will make from your illness!
Since it is an easily grown plant that can be grown freely by anyone they have made it an illegal Schedule I drug. Cannabis has been oppressed by the powers that be that are afraid of its true benefits, and these benefits do help all of mankind!
So cannabis fits the criteria for Anonymous’ support. We ask that all Anons and individuals please support the legalization efforts in any way possible! Even simply signing a petition or sharing info or even just having an open mind about the subject will help!
We ask you to please educate yourself on its many benefits and share these benefits with your sick or injured friends. We all know somebody that has cancer or diabetes and cannabis has helped or cured both and many other disorders!
Anonymous will begin its support for the legalization of marijuana on 4/20/12. So please show your support by educating yourselves and making your profile pic or timeline banner on your social services accts green or 420 friendly.
We have all seen the power of the SOPA blackout so Anonymous feels that we can help cure the world simply by everyone showing their support for this most beneficial plant! We must end the prohibition of cannabis!!
These oppressors make trillions of dollars off of the war on drugs by keeping their privately owned jails overcrowded with nonviolent drug offenders! We are approaching the 11 billion dollar mark that the government has spent on the drug war this year alone and have put millions of nonviolent offenders behind bars. This is a true crime against humanity and needs to end!
Saying cannabis is a dangerous drug and is not a medicine is NOT a noble lie… it is simply a lie!
WE ARE ANONYMOUS.
WE ARE LEGION for legalization!
WE DO NOT FORGIVE the crimes of the War on Drugs.
WE DO NOT FORGET our brothers + sisters locked up because of it.
