Charlo Greene (born Charlene Egbe) , an alaskan woman who attended high school in Anchorage, Alaska.

Charlo is a credited businesswoman and former reporter/anchor for KTVA in Anchorage, Alaska.
Aside from these accomplishments, Charlo Greene will forever be known as the “F*** it, I quit” reporter because of the headline-making manner in which she abruptly quit her KTVA job. In the news spotlight Greene revealed that she was the business owner of the club and used profanity after explaining that she was quitting in order to devote more time to advocate for marijuana reform in Alaska. “As for this job,” she concluded, “not that I have a choice, but… fuck it. I quit.” After quitting Greene opened an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for marijuana reform, on her Indiegogo page, Greene elaborates on her mission, mocking “prohibitionists” who use “fear-mongering” and “don’t know how to use Google.” She has also opened the Alaska Cannabis Club. Alaska Cannabis Club is Alaska’s FIRST and ONLY legal cannabis resource.
Now a public figure in the cannabis industry being recognized by pot smokers and activists worldwide, her mission is to being legalization to Alaska and hopefully around the world. On October 16, 2014 High Times awarded Greene its Courage in Media Award at their 40th anniversary party in New York. The 2015 4/20 High Times Cannabis Cup invited Charlo Greene as a guest speaker to encourage thousands to keep supporting Mary Jane!
