Some unsuspecting Tel Aviv residents got a green surprise over the weekend, when they discovered marijuana saplings surreptitiously dispersed at locations across the city, by cannabis-legalization activists, Channel 2 News reported Sunday.

Calling for “Legalization of Marijuana-Now,” proponents said the public relations stunt was intended to stimulate public debate.

“If people see that we are talking about a plant, perhaps their perceptions of marijuana will change,” the source said.
