"F*ck It, I Quit:" See Reporter Charlo Greene Come Out On Air as Cannabis Club Owner

Categories: Marijuana

Charlo Greene. Videos and more below.
In February 2013, we explained how the legalization of limited marijuana sales in Colorado and Washington were prefigured by a case in Alaska that dates back decades -- but which has resulted in a confusing and unregulated situation.

Now, however, the movement for regulating marijuana sales in Alaska following the Colorado and Washington models has a new face -- that of Charlo Greene, a KTVA-TV reporter who announced that she was leaving her job to work full time as the head of Alaska Cannabis Club via an on-air resignation last night that concluded, "Fuck it, I quit." Here's the video:

Jacinto Zavala: No Charges in Police Killing of Ex-Soldier Who Referenced Michael Brown

Categories: News

Photos of Jacinto Zavala from his Adamson Funeral & Cremation Services memorial page. Additional images and more below.
Several websites, including this one, have likened Greeley resident Jacinto Zavala's death in an August police shooting to the violent death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri -- an incident that led to riots and a national dialogue about race and law enforcement. Zavala, a former soldier said to suffer from PTSD, was holding a BB gun at the time he was killed, but his family has disputed that he was aiming it when officers pulled their triggers.

Now, the Weld County District Attorney's Office has issued a report about Zavala that reveals he actually mentioned Brown in the context of saying, "I'm not going to shoot the cops." Yet other factors led the DA's office to deem the officers' actions justified. Photos, details and the decision letter below.

Just 22 percent of Colorado law enforcement agencies and district attorneys complied with a new state law that requires them to submit reports about their contacts with students -- a number that the group Padres y Jovenes Unidos says is disappointing.

Those documents plus additional photos and more below.
