Charlo Greene, who worked as a reporterette at KTVA for a while, raised a bit of a ruckus when in 2014 she said at the conclusion of her "report" on pot, "Fuck it; I quit," and walked off the set. Greene's a doper, and darned proud of it. Since then, she's spent her time promoting pot, co-founded the Alaska Cannabis Club, and a bunch of other pot-related stuff.
By 2016, however, it was clear that Alaska officials weren't feeling so grateful. Rather, as The Guardian reported,"the state launched a series of undercover operations and raids," finally charging the young activist with 10 felony and four misdemeanor counts relating to ACC operations that carry up to 54 years in prison. “It’s almost dizzying when you try to make sense of it,” she told the Guardian last summer. “It could literally cost me the rest of my adult life.”
In her defense, she was only 26 at the time she walked off the set and began a pot business. And it's generally considered nowadays that human brains don't achieve full developmental status until 26 or a bit later. This is why Democratics classified them as children under Obamacare and allowed them to stay on Mommy's health insurance plan until they hit age 27. It's also why Democratics are pushing to allow kids as young as 16 to vote.
Even among pro-pot activists in Alaska, she doesn't have a lot of support. That's likely because she wasn't willing to wait for legal processes to be established. Most all of the growers and distributors have waited as the regulations rolled out. She didn't. And she calls the legal actions she's now facing "a modern-day lynching". Whatever.
