A bearded marijuana activist who calls himself Rev. Bud Green has claimed responsibility for running up white flags on the Brooklyn Bridge earlier this month.

The bleached American flags above one of New York's most recognizable landmarks drew national attention - an concern from city authorities who say the vandals should never have been able to make up the towers of the bridge unnoticed.

Green, who gained a small amount of fame on the 1980s talk show circuit by claiming that he worshiped God by smoking pot, posted an online rant on Wednesday saying that the white flags were meant as a political statement made by members of his POT (People Opposing Tyranny) Party.
