#1 Charlo Green
Charlo Greene made waves in the media when she quit her job at a television news anchor on live television in the middle of a report about marijuana legalization.
The Alaskan woman reported her story about the Alaska Cannabis Club, the first medical marijuana resource in Alaska, before marijuana was recreationally legalized in the state. The story was on the organization’s efforts to end the state’s prohibition of cannabis, which proved successful with 53% of the vote.
When she finished her report, she revealed the big surprise. Charlo told her audience she was actually the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, and she was behind a lot of the advocacy.
She told her audience she wanted to devote her time to fair access to medical cannabis, and that she was quitting her job as an anchor for KTVA news. She shocked the audience, saying “f*** it, I quit”, and walked right off the set.
The stunt paid off, as she is now a huge cannabis icon, and a successful activist and business person known nation wide.
