Last week news anchor Charlo Green from Alaska said goodbye to her job at the local KTVA news station in a rather dramatic way. She concluded an item on cannabis legalisation with the revelation that she herself is the owner of Alaska’s only cannabis club. From now on she’s planning to put all her energy and effort to support the marijuana legalisation movement in her state. The logical conclusion for her job as a journalist: "Fuck it, I quit."
The act reminds of American journalist Amber Lyon who earlier this year took leave of her long career at CNN to start a website on psychedelics: reset.me.
Charlo Greene's cannabis club is the only place where cannabis can be bought in Alaska. It's still a private club for medicinal users, but this might change in the near future. On November 4th Alaska will vote on the legalisation of marijuana. Greene hopes to transform her cannabis club into an inclusive point of sale.
