Local Anchorage reporter Charlo Greene made headlines yesterday when she quit, live on air, and dropped an F-bomb in the process. She has since stated that she quit on air to bring attention to marijuana legalization, which she plans on fighting for in Alaska. Alaska is set to vote on marijuana legalization this November, along with Oregon and Washington D.C.. I tip my hat to Ms. Greene. Passing up a good paying job to be a marijuana activist is not an easy thing to do.

Ms. Greene did what many Americans dream of doing. It reminds me of the movie Half Baked where Scarface quits after a series of F-bombs. During a marijuana segment, Ms. Greene stated the following:

“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.”

That led to the following statement by the news station:

Dear Viewers,

We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.

Dear KTVA, the news anchor quit, you didn’t fire her, but nice try. If you live in Alaska, make sure to vote yes on marijuana legalization this November and tell everyone else to do the same. The last poll out of Alaska showed the initiative losing, which would be a shame to see Ms. Greene quit her job for a failed initiative. Let’s make sure that’s not the case! Below is video showing the on air resignation, along with a message from Ms. Greene:

    Is there such a thing as bad publicity? If the cliché is true, she just hit the mother load of free publicity. Personally, I think the move was brilliant, but only time will tell what the fallout is. In the mean time….LOL

    I watched this multiple times I love it. Every person in Alaska should (even if your against) show your support to this brave woman who gave us the best “fuck you I quit” that has been seen in years. The best thing about it is because she believes in something grater than just her job.its personal rights to chose what’s best for ones self. Please people vote to legalize marijuana in Alaska. Just so you know I do not live anyware near Alaska
