TV Reporter Declares “F*ck It, I Quit” Live On Air To Concentrate On Campaign To Legalise Marijuana
1. On Sunday evening, KTVA-TV reporter Charlo Greene dramatically quit her job live on air.
In the segment she announced, “Now everything you have heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward freedom and fairness, which begins with legalising cannabis in Alaska.
“And as for this job, well not that I have a choice but… fuck it, I quit.”
2. The station later apologised for her language and confirmed her employment had been terminated.
3. Following the event, Greene posted a link on the Alaska Cannabis Club’s Facebook page to a statement explaining her actions.
4. She declared:
I’m Charlo Greene, the president and CEO of the Alaska Cannabis Club – Alaska’s only legal medical marijuana resource. I just quit my news reporting job on live TV to announce that I am redirecting all of my energy toward helping to end a failed drug policy that has ruined the lives of far too many Americans.
As a member of the media, I’ve seen the dirty campaign tricks and lies that prohibitionists have been using over the past several months to sway Alaskan voters firsthand. Here’s the sad thing: it’s working. Polling shows the majority of Alaskans, who were in favor of the initiative at the start of the year, are now against it.
5. The statement features on an IndieGogo page asking for $5,000 to “inform Alaskan voters” about the campaign.
Alaskan voters are due to vote on whether to legalise recreational use of cannabis on Nov. 4.
