Often referred to as the "the face of marijuana legalization", Charlo Greene is a cannabis activist, entrepreneur and media expert.
Charlo Greene became a recognized leader in cannabis activism in September 2014 when she publicly left her career as a news anchor to dedicate her life to fighting for cannabis reform with her famous "fuck it, I quit" resignation, heard around the world.
Following her exit, Charlo successfully led the charge in Alaska's 2014 effort to legalize recreational marijuana, securing Alaska's place as the third state in the nation (and first republican state) to legalize usage for adults.
Creative approaches to registering voters, spreading the marijuana reform message and getting voters excited about heading to the polls made all the difference in Alaska, and those methods are now being utilized by Go GREENE (gogreene.org), the non-profit organization, founded by Charlo, aimed at increasing diversity in cannabis activism and industry through educational, recreational and professional networking events for activists, potential entrepreneurs and cannabis industry leaders.
Charlo also serves as CEO of the Alaska Cannabis Club, Alaska's first and only legal marijuana resource.
Through her accomplishments and uncompromising pursuit of cannabis reform, Charlo has been named as one of the most influential, or potent, women in the cannabis reform movement by international media.
