The Hackivist group Anonymous have a campaign for pot legalization “Operation Cannabis” (or OpCannabis as it appears on Twitter and in Anonymous dispatches). While pot smoke pours from pro-pot demonstrations in cities across the globe, Anonymous and it’s supporters will be behind computers, trying to raise awareness of the benefits of the herb.
The Automated voice, a staple of Anonymous videos says
“We have heard and we have watched your governments lie and deceive on all of the dangers of cannabis. For far too long, cannabis has been oppressed by big corporations, Big Pharma and government when it could be benefiting all of mankind in many different levels”.
Anonymous elaborates in an OpCannabis press release, citing the versatility of cannabis and most notably it’s medicinal properties.
“Why aren’t we legalizing marijuana” Anonymous ask
Currently a large part of marijuana sales is in the hands of criminal organizations all around the world, and due to strict drug laws these criminals profit even more.
“so we demand full legalization of cannabis; good for the population, the fight against crime and the country it’s self.
To demonstrate solidarity, Anonymous is asking supporters to make social networking profiles green.
