As Alaskans inch daily closer to the major vote this fall that will determine if they become the third (or fourth, if Oregon also passes their law) state to pass a law fully legalizing cannabis for all adults, things are heating up in one of the coldest states in the Union.
Last night, an Alaskan reporter quit during a live news broadcasting after outing herself as the owner of the Alaskan Cannabis Club. After the segment about cannabis aired, Charlo Green, who had been reporting for KVTA, said something that producers were not expecting (click here for video).
“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. And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, fuck it, I quit.”
Charlo Green’s legal name is Charlene Egbe, and the station has confirmed that she is not longer in their employ, though they claim she was terminated.
The Alaskan Cannabis Club has an Indiegogo, so those who really appreciate Charlo’s flair can drop a few duckets her way. The funds won’t go to getting her dream business off the ground and running, but rather to advertising in Alaska to help educate voters and push back against prohibitionist propaganda.
