Charlo Greene Explains Why She Quit on Live TV With F-Word: Watch

How high? For Charlo Greene, there was no better reason to quit her job on live television than a little marijuana. 

The Alaska-based local news anchor became a viral celeb on Sunday, Sept. 21, when she completed a segment on marijuana legislation with a bit of a personal plug and an unexpected resignation. 

"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 after speaking on drug laws in Alaska. "And as for this job, well… not that I have a choice, but f–k it, I quit."

The day after her headline-making broadcast aired, Greene recorded a video with the Alaska Cannabis Club, explaining her dramatic exit.

"There comes a time in each and every one of our lives when we must choose to continue to spectate or stand up for what's right," Greene says in her "Why I Quit" video. 

According to the television personality, "what's right" is fighting for the repeal of "marijuana prohibition," as she sees it as "advocating for freedom and fairness."
