There’s more than one way to get the word out about your budding (pardon the pun) Medical Marijuana Cannabis Club and doing it live, on-air, in the middle of the Sunday evening’s broadcast of the news is bound to be effective.
After all, we’re even reporting on it here, aren’t we? *NSFW Video scroll down
Seems that TV reporter Charlo Greene is also part-owner of the medical marijuana business “Alaska Cannabis Club” and during KTVA-TV’s 10 p.m. newscast Sunday, she announced to her live audience she wanted to sell and promote the legalization of dope. In a scene which I’m surprised wasn’t in “Anchorman II;” Greene also said; “..not that I have a choice but, fu*k it, I quit.”
H/T Alaska Dispatch
Reporter Charlo Greene quit on-air during KTVA-TV’s 10 p.m. newscast Sunday, revealing herself as the owner of the medical marijuana business Alaska Cannabis Club and telling viewers that she would be using all of her energy to fight for legalizing marijuana in Alaska.
Greene had reported on the Alaska Cannabis Club during Sunday night’s broadcast, without revealing her connection to it. At the end of the report, during a live shot, she announced that she was the club’s owner and would be quitting.
“Now everything you’ve heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska,” she said. “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, fuck it, I quit.”
And with that, she walked off camera.
Alaska Cannabis Club had urged its Facebook followers to tune in to the broadcast Sunday evening...
Just a coincidence, I’m sure.. Reached later, Greene said KTVA had no idea she was going to quit, or that she was connected to the Alaska Cannabis Club.
Uh-huh. I see. Chris Joy figured it out for us:
Its pretty simple what she did really – dropping an F-bomb is an easy way to get this video everywhere since this kind of stuff is always used for filler on cable news, the Yahoo front page and stuff like the Today show – and because of that she’s raised awareness for her organization and the indegogo campaign faster and with more reach than any other way of promotion.
