News Anchor Uses The F-Word On Live TV - Quits Her Job For Marijuana Business

Posted in: , ,

Charlo Greene, a reporter in Alaska, announced on live TV that she would be quitting her job to focus on activism to legalize marijuana use in her home state. In the clip where she quit, Charlo said;

“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. And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f--k it, I quit." 

The news anchor has now given her reasons and began her call for support of her cause in a YouTube video released Monday. Charlo Greene explains that she believes the fight for marijuana legalization in Alaska is very important, and a human right. She says;

"There comes a time in each and every one of our lives where we must choose to continue to spectate or stand up for what's right. Why are Americans arrested every 37 seconds, Alaskans every 4.3 hours? Why should an aspiring someone lose their ability to earn a higher education, to become someone they were not meant to be? And why should you lose the ability to get public assistance in times of struggle and need?"

"Advocating for freedom and fairness should be everyone's duty. I'm making it my life work to uphold what America stands for truly: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, ideals that now need to be defended."

Alaskans are set to vote on Ballot Measure 2, which would legalize possession of small amounts of marijuana for recreational use, in November. Colorado and Washington have implemented similar legislation in the last year.
