Alaska news channel KTVA experienced a shocking revelation last night on live television, when reporter Charlo Greene — after detailing a medical marijuana organization called the Alaska Cannabis Club — admitted that she was in fact the owner of said club. Greene quickly cut to the point: like a true activist, she was quitting her job at the station to dedicate all of her energy to seeing Alaska’s legalization initiative pass in the upcoming election.

Watch the video here.

The exact wording of our hero’s resignation is indeed explicit, so consider yourself warned:

“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 — fuck it, I quit.”

Hours after her dramatic display, Greene posted an Indiegogo campaign that provides more information regarding her decision to leave KTVA. The campaign is collecting donations to help the Alaska legalization movement. She writes, “As a member of the media, I’ve seen the dirty campaign tricks and lies that prohibitionists have been using over the past several months to sway Alaskan voters firsthand.”

As of the writing of this article, Greene’s campaign has already raised 60% of its $5,000 goal, and is still set to run for another 16 days.
