ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A reporter for an Alaska TV station revealed on the air that she owns a medical marijuana business and was quitting her job to advocate for the drug.

After reporting on the Alaska Cannabis Club on Sunday night’s broadcast, KTVA’s Charlo Greene identified herself as the business’s owner and said she would be devoting all her energy to fighting for “freedom and fairness.” She then used an expletive to quit her job, and walked off-camera.

In a statement on KTVA’s website, news director Bert Rudman apologized for Greene’s “inappropriate language” and said she was terminated.

Alaska voters decide Nov. 4 whether to legalize recreational pot. Measure 2 would be similar to Washington and Colorado’s legalization laws.

    As a black woman she should have shown more grace in quitting. Instead she chose to make us all look bad. The adverse affects of weed live on television. She has no respect for others. Some of us don’t like to hear all of the profanity. These is why they don’t curse on the news. Because we all have different values and standards. And we try not to offend others while in public. Its called being civilized. BUt Most people who smoke pot do not respect others.
