BY TRAVIS MAURER \n Charlogreene.com \n Its my birthday. \n2 years ago today I broke the entire fucking internet and \nbecame a living legend at 26 for executing one of the \ngreatest PR plays that resulted in Alaska legalizing \nweed. \nToday is more my birthday, than my biological birthday. Im \ngonna celebrate with weed. \nWhat followed after fuck it: \nI created Alaskas only safe access point, the Alaska Cannabis \nClub, which remains the only safe place for the states \nthousands of medical patients \nI created Go Greene, a nonprofit that organizes the \nsuccessful Cannabis Diversity Summit outreach event series. \nWeve held more than 6 educational events this year for \ncommunities of color. \nI produce and host my own talk show which has reached more \nthan 33 million people since starting this May (thats more \nviewers than most primetime shows btw and more viewers than \nmy last news station KTVA 11 News gets in a decade lol) \nIn 2 weeks my medical marijuana pre-roll company goes live in \nMichigan. \nIn 2 months, my womens cannabis magazine, Her Flower \nMagazine, will be printing 10,000 free copies and \ndistributing them across North America as well as making it \navailable online. \nAnd soon Ill be releasing my first music video, featuring a \nsong I wrote and recorded, which will be followed by my EP \nand a smoke session/listening tour. Yes, I make music and its \nfucking amazing. Like Wiz Khalifa meets Dej Loaf meets a \npound of purp lol. Im sooooo excited to share this with \nyou. \nThen my trial, the states effort to jail me for 24 years for \ntaking a stand and refusing to turn my back on the states \nmedical marijuana patients, will begin. \nDid I know I would be facing a lifetime behind bars for \nstanding up for cannabis and justice and freedom? No. \nWould I do anything differently seeing where things \nended? \nYes. I wouldve left Alaska immediately after fuck it knowing \nthat none of the residents actually had my back or would be \nwilling to stand up for me none except the one guy that \nshowed up to my first hearing. I wouldve gone ANYwhere else \nbut here, because in Alaska, and Im sure anyone thats made it \nfrom a small town can agree: the most vocal people, who have \nthe most free time because they have nothing going on for \nthemselves think that my come up means itll cost them theirs. \nThey see opportunities to do or be great as limited and see \nme as a threat to their ability to create a legacy. So \ninstead of support I was immediately put under attack by the \npeople I sacrificed everything for who justified the backlash \nafter reading a few shitty local opinion pieces (that were \ndripping with racism about how ghetto and classless I, a \nperson these people had only every known as a news anchor \nbefore fuck it, was) that were disguised as news. \nI wouldve left sooner and gone anywhere else. \nBut I didnt. I stayed and kept my commitment to continue \nproviding safe access to the people that needed it most and \nIm looking at a lifetime behind bars because of it and the \npeople of Alaska remain silent as the state uses their tax \ndollars to fund a modern day lynching of the one voice \nwilling to speak out. Alaskans Outside of that, theres \nnothing Id change. \nI live everyday like it could be my last because in less than \na year, its a very real possibility that I will be locked in \na cage and not let out until Im 62. That means no kids. No \nfamily. No nothing. So, thats an upside to the trial, Ive \nbeen forced to value each day that much more knowing that I \nmay not have many left. \nAny who Happy Birthday to me. Ill only be accepting gifts of \nweed today. And none of that boo boo shit. \nJoin me for a live cyber sesh in a couple of hours. Well do a \nlive Ask Me Anything to celebrate this momentous occasion. \n SHARE this post if you think this information can help \nsomeone you know! \n Subscribe at CharloGreene.com for the \n latest cannabis news, exclusive interviews and useful \n reviews.
