Remember The Reporter Who Quit On Air For Cannabis? This Is What She’s Doing Now
You might never guess what the broadcast reporter, who famously quit her job on air due to her love of cannabis, is doing now.
You might never guess what the broadcast reporter who famously quit her job on air last September is just about to launch.
She said on Friday that she will be opening a cannabis club in Anchorage, Alaska, with the intention of turning it into a fully fledged seed to sale business by the end of 2016.
Charlo Greene did, after all, quit her job on air as an attempt to publicize her movement to legalize pot in Alaska. She hasn’t failed to deliver since then pursuing the movement of legal marijuana in Alaska.
Alaska Cannabis Club
Greene’s business will be called the Alaska Cannabis Club, and at the moment is the club house to medical marijuana users in Anchorage. Until recreational marijuana was legal in Alaska, Greene was using the space with other residents to share their own personal medical marijuana strains, which they were growing under the Alaskan law at the time.
Since marijuana has been legalized recreationally, they have been able to use the space as a full sharing network of local growers. They are allowed to share up to one ounce of their sativa or indica marijuana legally under the Alaskan legal cannabis policy. She also hosts grow yourself classes, workshops and events. And without having to say so, the property is a place for residents to get high.
By 2016, there should be licensed shops selling marijuana all over Alaska. Greene hopes to expand her business then to a complete seed to sale business. She even wants to include a home delivery service associated with her business website.
“Fuck it. I quit!”
Charlo Greene had what some might consider an extremely esteemed position as a broadcast reporter, but extravagantly and famously quit her job on air. She smoked pot as a teenager and used it to get off a destructive path with alcohol. She was then able to graduate college with exceptional grades. When she began to feel that the strength behind the legalization movement in Alaska was slipping away, she planned an elaborate on-camera revival. She expressed that she had always wanted to be a part of this movement publicly.
“I … will be dedicating all of my energy toward 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,” she said on a live television broadcast in September 2014.
Not wanting to be defeated by her compromise as a broadcaster, she did an exceptionally brave thing and splashed out on camera exactly how she felt. She has been admired by the stoner community in Anchorage, Alaska ever since for her behavior and has become an integral part of the cannabis community there.
Her last name is even Greene. She probably feels it would be doing a complete dissatisfaction to her family name not to be a part of this cause!
