‘Fuck It’: Alaska Cannabis Club owner, TV reporter quits on air, says she’ll work to legalize
At some point, activists reach a decision in their professional working life to stop compromising and to focus their attention on their selected cause.
A reporter for Anchorage CBS-affiliate KTVA quit on live television Sunday night, using the f-word to punctuate an announcement that she will work to legalize marijuana as the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club.
The reporter, known professionally as Charlo Greene, made the announcement during the station’s 10 p.m. newscast at the end of a story titled “Voting for easier access.” Greene told viewers that she is owner of the group, which describes itself as a liaison between people who hold medical marijuana cards and those who can supply the drug.
“Everything you heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska,” she said.
“And as for this job,” Greene continued, “Well, not that I have a choice, but f— it, I quit.”
Ms. Greene explains herself and taking activism to a new level.
