Reporter Who Supports Marijuana Legalization is Facing Jail Time

Charlo Greene, a Black woman reporter, quit her job live on air when she was reporting on a story about a cannabis club. The club she was reporting on actually was hers, and she ended up quitting live on air. Since quitting live on TV, she has been targeted by police.

“The State of Alaska has taken their own set of bold moves. Since the story’s airing, the state of Alaska has conducted six undercover purchases and two raids at Greene’s cannabis club and is charging her with eight counts of “misconduct involving a controlled substance,” which is a serious criminal offense.”

If convicted, Greene faces up to 24 years in prison, even though Greene was not a part of any of the transactions that are under investigation. Greene is calling this act a “modern day lynching.”
