"F— It" TV News Reporter Celebrates Alaska's New Marijuana Law
Cannabis club owner posts a video on Facebook congratulating voters for legalizing recreational marijuana
A former news reporter for the CBS affiliate in Anchorage, Alaska, who quit her job during a live broadcast by declaring "f— it, I quit" posted a video on Facebook Wednesday congratulating voters for endorsing the state's marijuana law.
Alaska became the fourth state to legalize recreational marijuana on Tuesday, joining Oregon, Washington and Colorado.
"We just made history for doing a good thing. Congratulations," said Charlo Greene, the former KTVA reporter and owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club.
Following a live news report about the Alaska Cannabis Club on Sept. 21, Greene revealed she is the owner of the business and quit. "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, well, not that I have a choice but, f— it, I quit."
Having said her piece, Greene then walked off camera and into news headlines for her candid public exit.
