About Charlo Greene

Charlo Greene is a broadcast journalist and media expert turned activist and businesswoman who has emerged as a leading voice in the ongoing conversation about legalization, as well as diversity, in the cannabis community after garnering more than 100 MILLION VIEWS online. Charlo became a recognized leader in cannabis activism in September 2014, when she punctuated her on-air report on the Alaska Cannabis Club with the bombshell that she was the club’s founder and owner, proudly declared her activism and signed off for the last time with, “F*ck it, I quit…” Immediately 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-led state) to legalize usage for adults. ​ A longtime (and until late 2014, underground) activist in the cannabis community, Charlo is fast establishing herself as a bona fide force for worldwide change—and as one of the few women of color in leadership positions in the industry, she has a unique voice that demands to be heard. ​ Through her socially conscious organization Go GREENE, Charlo is joining forces with nationwide grassroots activism campaigns that seek to change the way we think about cannabis. Go GREENE is the first of several new ventures that Charlo is set to introduce, including one designed for women who are as passionate about cannabis as she is. Charlo is the first of seven children to obtain a college degree, completing her Bachelors in Broadcast News & Communications at University of Texas at Arlington, where she graduated cum laude, remaining on the Dean's List for six semesters. She currently belongs to the Minority Cannabis Business Association, and serves on the Board of Advisors for MD Herb – a leading online medical marijuana resource. Additionally, Charlo also serves as CEO of the Alaska Cannabis Club (akcannabisclub.com), Alaska's first and only legal marijuana resource. Through her accomplishments and uncompromising pursuit of cannabis reform, is recognized as one of the most influential women in the cannabis reform movement.
