Friday is the twentieth day of April, the holiest of marijuana holidays 4/20, when at 20 minutes past four in the afternoon... well, you get the idea. And the meaning of the cloud of smoke emanating from Golden Gate Park.

Anonymous is plotting something else for Friday, however, an operation on marijuana. The hacktivist collective has already taken down some Web sites, but what exactly is in stage on Friday, when #OpCannabis is supposed to hit the Internet and our collective consciousness?

A public information campaign appears to be the first step, with marijuana-friendly members of the worldwide shadowy group promoting marijuana's beneficial uses, according to reports.

In YouTube videos, Anonymous asks marijuana-friendly users to change their social media profiles to various shades of green, according to SF Weekly. Could more be in store? Stay tuned.
