Potty-mouthed pro-pot reporter quits on live TV
TORONTO – A TV reporter in Alaska signed off Sunday night by telling viewers “f**k it, I quit.”
During a report on Alaska’s marijuana debate, KTVA 11’s Charlo Greene was talking about the Alaska Cannabis Club, a legal medical cannabis collective, when she revealed she was the owner of the business.
“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,” she said. “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f**k it, I quit.”
Greene then shrugged and walked off the set.
Speaking with Alaska Dispatch News, Greene apologized if she offended viewers, “but I’m not sorry for the choice that I made,” she said.
The now former reporter explained to the newspaper she quit in a dramatic fashion to help draw attention to legalizing marijuana in Alaska and nationwide.
KTVA apologized on Facebook for the reporter’s inappropriate language and said “the employee has been terminated.”
According to Alaska Cannabis Club’s Facebook page, the collective “connects medical marijuana patients in need to Alaskan cardholders with green.”
Alaskans head to the polls on Nov. 4 to vote on whether or not to legalize recreational pot.
