We all remember this news anchor, Charlo Greene from Alaska yes?
The video of herself quitting her job live on-air in order to fight for freedom and fairness to use marijuana went viral after she quit. Now this same ex news anchor may face up to 24 years in prison for eight charges of "misconduct involving a controlled substance." This is in spite of Alaska becoming the third state to legalize marijuana in November 2014 (two months after Greene's resignation). Because the legalization didn't go into effect until February 2015, the cops raided Greene's cannabis club twice and made six undercover purchases, therefore being allowed to charge her with criminal offenses.
Greene spoke to The Guardian saying, "It's almost dizzying when you try to make sense of it. It could literally cost me the rest of my adult life." If found guilty, the 28-year-old will be 52 by the time she gets out.
Greene pleaded not guilty and will stand trial in the upcoming months.
