      KTVA reporter quits on-air, reveals herself as owner of Alaska Cannabis Club

      Laurel Andrews
      September 21, 2014

      Reporter Charlo Greene quit on-air during KTVA-TV's 10 p.m. newscast Sunday, revealing herself as the owner of the medical marijuana business Alaska Cannabis Club and telling viewers that she would be using all of her energy to fight for legalizing marijuana in Alaska.

      Greene had reported on the Alaska Cannabis Club during Sunday night’s broadcast, without revealing her connection to it. At the end of the report, during a live shot, she announced that she was the club's owner and would be quitting.

      “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, fuck it, I quit.”

      And with that, she walked off camera.

      Alaska Cannabis Club had urged its Facebook followers to tune in to the broadcast Sunday evening.

      Reached later, Greene said KTVA had no idea she was going to quit, or that she was connected to the Alaska Cannabis Club.

      Asked why she quit in such a dramatic way, she said, "Because I wanted to draw attention to this issue. And the issue is medical marijuana. Ballot Measure 2 is a way to make medical marijuana real ... most patients didn’t know the state didn’t set up the framework to get patients their medicine."

      "If I offended anyone, I apologize, but I’m not sorry for the choice that I made," she said.

      In a statement posted on KTVA's Facebook page Sunday night, news director Bert Rudman said, "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."

      Started in April, the Alaska Cannabis Club connects medical marijuana cardholders with other cardholders who are growing cannabis. Growers are offered "donations" as reimbursement for the costs of growing marijuana, the club said in an interview with Alaska Dispatch News in August. The club said it hopes to increase access to medical marijuana patients, despite operating in a legal gray area within Alaska's murky medical marijuana laws.

      Video clips of the broadcast were quickly uploaded to YouTube and shared on Reddit Sunday night.

      Marijuana legalization opposition group “Big Marijuana. Big Mistake. Vote No on 2” posted on its Twitter page “#KTVA reporter covering ballot measure 2 loses her mind, confesses to being an owner of the cannabis club and quits while on the air.”

      Alaska voters will decide on Nov. 4 whether to legalize recreational use of pot in the state, as Colorado and Washington have.

        Willie Nelson Becomes Maureen Dowd's 'Marijuana Miyagi'


        By Kory Grow | September 22, 2014


        In his Rolling Stone cover story, Willie Nelson said that New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd was welcome on his bus to get high properly "anytime" after reading her account of a bad experience with a marijuana-infused candy bar. Dowd took him up on the offer and penned her Sunday Review op-ed column about how welcoming and enlightening Nelson was, calling him her "marijuana Miyagi."

        The columnist met with Nelson before his recent concert at Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club, where he invited her onto his tour bus, the Honeysuckle Rose. After she got over her nerves ("The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon," she wrote, "one of America's top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, 'a hippie's hippie and a redneck's redneck'"), she asked him what she should know about legal pot so she does not have a repeat episode.

        "The same thing that happened to you happened to me one or two times when I was not aware of how much strength was in whatever I was eating," Nelson told her. "One time, I ate a bunch of cookies that, I knew they were laced but I didn't worry about it. I just wanted to see what it would do, and I overdid it, naturally, and I was laying there, and it felt like the flesh was falling off my bones.

        "Honestly, I don't do edibles," he continued. "I'd rather do it the old-fashioned way, because I don't enjoy the high that the body gets. Although I realize there's a lot of other people who have to have it that way, like the children that they're bringing to Colorado right now for medical treatments. Those kids can't smoke. So for those people, God bless 'em, we're for it."

        "I thought the article was great," Nelson tells Rolling Stone. "Pretty funny."

        In his Rolling Stone interview, Nelson had said that, after Dowd's bad trip, "maybe she'll read the label now." In her column, Dowd wrote, "Nelson humored me as I also pointed out that the labels last winter did not feature the information that would have saved me from my night of dread." (New labeling laws have since been passed in both of the states where weed is legal, Colorado and Washington.)

        Elsewhere in the column, Nelson explained why he had started smoking weed in the first place. "I found out that pot is the best thing for me because I needed something to slow me down a little bit," Nelson told Dowd. Referring to his past as a "mean drunk," to use Dowd's phrasing, he also said that if he had continued to drink heavily, "there's no telling how many people I would have killed by now."

        Additionally, the country singer shrugged off California Governor Jerry Brown's claim that America's superiority would be threatened if everyone indulged in marijuana and humored a question about a time when he allegedly smoked a joint on the roof of the White House, during the Carter administration. "It happened a long time ago," he said. "I'm sure it happened."

        As for possibly smoking pot in the Lincoln bedroom, Nelson told Dowd, "I wouldn't do anything Lincoln would have done."

          Fuck it..I quit

          TV reporter: “F*** It, I quit.” CNN’s Jeanne Moos reports she went out with a bang to help legalize the bong.

              Now, if she's lucky, she can be a clerk at a WaWa. How ultra stupid.

                      Didn't realize. Just figured burning a bridge and tarnishing yourself for future employment was something only lottery winners should do.

                        I believe the issue is that she was reporting on or had reported on stories that included reference or feature of the shop she has an ownership interest in and did not disclose or recuse herself.

                          If she plans to make a future living selling legal pot what she did will make her a big hero with her potential customers. Hey she took a stand for what she believes in. At least she's not a sheep like most people and because we have so many sheep it's why the citizens get rolled by the big corporate machine. Why? Because they are sheep and the man knows it.

                                That is entirely possible, since she used a different name on the air than she did as the owner of the cannabis club. Maybe somebody at the TV station was curious why she (as a reporter) couldn't land an interview with the owner, despite having no apparent problems getting access to the business otherwise?
