If you've been following Charlo Greene's social media posts as of late, you may have seen her pleas of innocence as her dispensary was raided this past Friday from the Alaska Police Department.
The former television reporter, most notably known for quitting her job in epic fashion on live television with the expletives 'f-k it, I quit', took to Facebook to vent her frustration as her dispensary, the Alaska Cannabis Club, was served with a search warrant. On her Facebook page, Greene recorded a "video selfie" of her herself where she stated, "Happy Friday morning, ya'll, Charlo here at the Alaska Cannabis Club, which is being raided for the first time by APD."
According to reports, police issued the warrant based on the suspicion that illegal marijuana was being cultivated and that illegal transactions had been taking place at the dispensary. To date, it's uncertain if Greene even had a proper marijuana license to begin with, and this is more than likely the case for why the warrant was served in the first place.
From the exact words of the search warrant given by police, they were looking for "marijuana, in cultivation or harvested, resins, oils, hashish or other THC derivatives, concentrates, edibles and equipment used in the extraction of THC," as well as electronic statements "used in or intended for use in or derived from trafficking in controlled substances."
The 26 year old Greene, who's legal name is Charlene Egbe, told KTVA, that police took marijuana plants, bongs, glass pipes
, phones, computers, and two vehicles from the Cannabis Club. Although Alaska became the third state last month to officially legalize recreational marijuana
, it's still illegal to sell and smoke it in public places.
Contrary to APD's search warrant, Greene claims that her dispensary doesn't sell any medical or recreational marijuana. "We don't sell weed here. Period. Point Blank," said Greene to KTVA. Despite being upset and taken back by the raid, Greene opened her dispensary back up the very next morning, with consultation from her lawyer.
