Do you guys remember Charlo Greene? She’s that cute news anchor who quit her job in a way that most of us could only dream of. Yep, she’s the former CBS news anchor who said “bye-bye” to her 9 to 5 right there on the spot…just after saying “F*ck” on live TV…a moment that won’t soon be forgotten.
I must admit, when I first saw the video, I was just as shocked as anybody else. Frankly, I thought it was tasteless. BUT, aside from all of that, I remember thinking, “Man this girl has got BALLS!” Deep down in my soul, I loved every minute of it. I can appreciate someone who is willing to take a stand for what they believe in.
I did know however, that things would never be the same for Greene. I knew that someone, somewhere was going to try and make her life a living hell. And I was right.
Last week, Anchorage police raided Greene’s Pot Club after receiving reports of illegal drug sells at her residence. *rolls eyes* Greene, told KTVA, the same news station that she abruptly ditched, that she does not sell weed at her pot club.
“We don’t sell any recreational marijuana. We don’t sell any medical marijuana. This is a place for cardholders to come and share their own cannabis.”
But no worries. Greene didn’t let a little raid stop her fun. She’s back and open for business only hours after police tried to steal her joy. Now THAT’S dedication!
“By opening back up bright and early, less than 24 hours after the local police department’s failed scare tactic, we, at the Alaska Cannabis Club, have made it clear that the will of the people is stronger than any force they have — and we aren’t going anywhere,” she said in an email to The Associated Press.
In case you aren’t keeping track, recreational use of marijuana IS legal in Alaska. However, it is NOT legal to sell it. Can we say mixed messages?
Here’s my two cents: People want to make this woman pay. They don’t like the fact that she is living life by her own standards. People don’t like the fact that she is a young Black woman who is doing this, and HAPPY doing this. I don’t like the vibe I’m getting from this story.
Apparently Greene wasn’t feeling the vibe much either. According to Huffington Post, Charlo was PISSED that the police weren’t tending to other pressing matters around town like…murder and robbery.
You know what Charlo? I don’t think anybody can really argue with that. If you like it, I love it! Float on girl!
