Charlo “F—-k it, I quit” Greene Lights A Joint Live On Air
After announcing she was leaving her job at the KTVA station in Anchorage, Alaska, by telling viewers, “F—k it, I quit,” she joined HuffPost Live on Thursday and smoked a joint live on the air.
"I’ll spark up right now. It is what it is. I’m in the privacy of my own home."
So yes, that happened.
Can I pls marry her.
I don’t think I will ever understand someone who gives up their career for a drug.
She’s entering a new career in medicine.
Humanity has been using cannabis & hemp since the days of prehistory. It’s a food, a textile, a medicine and it does lend itself to recreational use similar to alcohol — unlike alcohol it does not cause bouts of drunken rage or cause organ and circulatory system disorders.
It was made illegal in the 20th century beginning in the US due to pressure from competing industry groups — cotton growers and the pharmaceutical industry had interests in retraining the use, and after the prohibition of alcohol ended corporate interests in that industry wanted to keep their monopoly on recreational euphorics.
Racism in the US also influenced continued cannabis prohibition. Use of “Gage” as a traditional sacred herb can be traced to Africa and was carried throughout the African diaspora. Propagandized as a criminal element of African-american culture, criminalization of cannabis was used to criminalize and marginalize large segments of the the population of African heritage and continues to support the prison-industrial complex.
Humanity has sprung from the loins of the Fertile Crescent and has aggregated the evolutionary iterations of cannabis use within the very core of our DNA. We have grown as a species with it in our blood since the beginning of time — it’s a natural part of who we are, what we’ve become and, hopefully, our future if we are lucky enough to have a future in the face of corporate fascism, pollution, nuclear and biological weapons of mass destruction and an out-of-control population lorded-over by a micro-segment of the ultra rich and powerful.
Every movement has martyrs, some give their lives, Charlo gave her job.
More power to her in her new direction.
