Former news reporter turned face for the legalization of marijuana, Charlo Greene found herself fighting for the cause again recently.
Greene who famously quit while on-air in Alaska to show support for legalizing medical marijuana in the state had her cannabis club raided recently by the police.
Anchorage police served search warrants at the Alaska Cannabis Club on Friday, KTVA Alaska reports. The Alaska Cannabis Club is owned by Charlene Egbe, also known as Charlo Greene, also known as the “Fuck it, I quit” reporter.
Anchorage Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Castro told KTVA that police had received reports “of the illegal sale of marijuana and other derivatives” at the clubhouse.
According to KTVA, the warrant says “there is now being concealed property, namely: Marijuana, in cultivation or harvested, resins, oils, hashish or other THC derivatives, concentrates, edibles and equipment used in the extraction of THC” as well as “items relating to illegal transactions” and money “used in or intended for use in or derived from trafficking in controlled substances.”
“This is basically a medical marijuana dispensary,” Greene told KTVA. “We don’t sell any recreational marijuana, we don’t sell any medical marijuana. This is a place for card holders to come and share their own cannabis.”
“I saw them uproot a couple of marijuana plants. They took some bongs and pipes and phones and computers and that’s pretty much it.”
Greene told The Associated Press in an email that she reopened the club on Saturday.
“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 wrote.
According to the AP, no charges have been filed in connection with the raid.
