With 100 percent of precincts reporting, the Alaska Dispatch News said Alaskans voted 52 percent to 48 percent to legalize marijuana in the state.
Greene, the reporter who quit on-air by saying “Fuck it! I quit” after revealing her ties to a pot club she had been reporting on, posted the news to her facebook page, “That just happened,” wrote Greene. “WE legalized marijuana in Alaska. Still in shock.”
There had been some concern Greene, who was the president of the Alaska Cannabis Club, had used her public platform to sway the vote towards the pro side in her reporting.
“Yes, I had an awesome job as a TV journalist, but it was just that — a job. Now, I’m working for a cause — marijuana reform — and every day is so much more fulfilling,” Greene told MTV the day before Alaskans approved the measure.
She added, “Regardless of what happens on November 4, I will continue working for marijuana reform across the nation and the world. This is my calling and I think justice will prevail.”
