Greene waited until after she told host Alyona Minkovski she agreed with KTVA news director Bert Rudman who said Greene “betrayed the basic bedrock of responsible journalism” by reporting on her own business.

“I have a journalism degree. I know in journalism there is a line that you’re not supposed to cross,” said Greene. “And the minute that I bought my business license on 4/20 of this year, I shouldn’t have reported on any marijuana story. But if I had gone to my boss and said, ‘Hey. I just bought this company,’ I would have been fired. Period”


When Minkovski asked Greene if she was going to wait till the interview was over to light the joint she was holding in her hand, Greene said she’d spark it up right now. Then she did. Watch it after the jump.
