VIDEO – ‘F*ck It, I Quit’: Alaska TV Reporter Quits on Air to Become Pot Activist
A television news reporter in Alaska announced that she is quitting her job to focus on running her medical marijuana business – all on the air.
On Sunday, KTVA reporter Charlo Greene reported on the Alaska Cannabis Club before announcing to viewers that she herself is the owner of the club.
“Now everything you’ve 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,” Greene said.
“And as for this job,” Greene added, “not that I have a choice but, f*** it, I quit.”
After her report, she went on to say, “I wanted to draw attention to this issue, and the issue is medical marijuana. Ballot Measure 2 is a way to make medical marijuana real… most patients didn’t know the state didn’t set up the framework to get patients their medicine. If I offended anyone, I apologize, but I’m not sorry for the choice I made.”
In November, the state will vote on legalizing recreational use of marijuana.
The Alaska Cannabis Club connects medical marijuana cardholders with others who are growing marijuana.
KTVA News Director Bert Rudman apologized for the report on the station’s Facebook page, writing, “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.”
