(NEWSER) — Charlo Greene made headlines in 2014 when the then 26-
year-old memorably quit her TV reporting gig on air while
announcing her intention to push for the legalization of
marijuana in Alaska: She said, "F--- it, I quit," before walking
out of view. But as the Guardian reports, her ensuing off-screen
plight has been largely ignored, even though she faces more than
a half-century in prison.
That's because Greene, whose legal name is Charlene Egbe, isn't
just a cannabis advocate but the owner of the Alaska Cannabis
Club, which she created on April 20, 2014, a full six months
before Alaska voted to legalize the adult use of cannabis. In
other words, she was receiving "donations" for marijuana through
club "memberships" before it was legal to do so.
Police raided the club twice and detectives made several
undercover purchases, and though Greene wasn't directly involved
in them, state prosecutors are charging her because the club is
registered under her name. She's pleaded not guilty to charges
of "misconduct involving a controlled substance," and the
original indictment listed eight offenses that amounted to a
possible 24 years in jail.
The Guardian broke the news to Greene that six offenses have
since been added, raising the total to 54 years. In the Weed
Blog, Greene calls this a "modern-day lynching," and tells High
Times that she hopes the cannabis community rallies behind her.
"I need help more than ever," she says. "Now that I could lose
the rest of my life because of cannabis, it feels like the
people I fought for have abandoned me." (Alaskans can't smoke
weed in public.)
