Watch below as Charlo Greene, a reporter for Alaska’s KTVA, resigns live on air to fight for marijuana legalisation.
After presenting a piece on a medical marijuana club on Sunday afternoon, she told viewers: “I – the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club – will be dedicating all of my energy for fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalising marijuana here in Alaska.
“And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, fuck it, I quit.”
Her stunned colleague then told viewers: “Right we apologise for that. We’ll be right back.”
