VIDEO: “F**k It, I Quit.” Reporter Resigns On Air to Join in Marijuana Legalization Fight

5

Charlo Greene, a reporter for Alaskan news network KTVA, quit her job while on air in order to join marijuana legalization efforts in the state.

“I — the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club — will be dedicating all of my energy for fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska. And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but… fuck it, I quit,” Charlo said, live on the air.

The station later apologized for the act via their twitter account saying “We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.”

Greene’s business, Alaska Cannabis Club, connects medical marijuana patients with the substance to other patients in need.

Alaska’s marijuana policy will come up for a vote in November with a ballot measure for legalization.  In an effort to help, Greene has started an Indiegogo campaign asking for $5,000 to help inform Alaskan voters.  The campaign has raised $455 so far.

    This
    was obviously unprofessional and juvenile, and it’s amusing to see how
    many people think she was in the right here…very telling of this
    page’s audience. If I was 20, sure, I wouldve thought this was great.
    But because my brain is now fully developed, I see it as a wasted
    opportunity to show that cannabis activists can be intelligent,
    impressive and passionate without being vulgar and petty.

      Considering how this is all over social media, I would say it was a pretty savvy move. Sometimes to create awareness you have to break a few eggs.
