This past weekend, an Alaskan television reporter by the name of Charlo Greene shocked viewers' and co-worker's alike when she quit her job at the end of a segment on marijuana legislation. Greene, real name Charlene Egby, dropped an f-bomb in her self-serving rant before outing herself as the owner of the Alaskan Cannabis Club and rallying viewer's to support legalization of marijuana.
"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 f--k it, I quit."
Today, Egby posted a follow-up video explaining why she quit and reminding people that the legalization of Cannibas will be part of a November ballot. She encourages everyone to unite and share their own story of what the drug has done for them.
"Talk to a friend, a mother, a coworker, brother-anyone-just share your own 'my marijuana' story,". Show them that we smokers are responsible, contributing members to society. Changing one heart and mind at a time is the only way to legalize marijuana and bask in Lady Liberty's glory."
Is Egby out of her mind for taking this drastic kind of approach in order to unite supporters or is this is exactly why she is the club's owner- because she understands the power of the media and just what a few minutes on camera can do? Let's face it, Egby wanted attention and she most certainly got it, right?
