Apparently, the anti-recreational marijuana lobby has been complaining to her station about airing her spots. As usually the case with these kinds of things, you find who's behind the lobbying effort has more to do with who has a financial stake in keeping pot illegal than with moral or medical reasons.

She's in the entertainment business. There are probably people lining up to get her on some kind of show, she has spunk and charisma. I have to say I liked the way she did it without any sense of bitterness and a calm demeanor. The other chick's reaction was priceless. Way less polished than eff it lady.

I really liked her, hope she goes far.

(No I don't smoke pot, it doesn't agree with me unfortunately).

Well, this lady just ended her TV career, but she might have wanted to do that anyways. Who knows what her real reasons were?

She wants to promote the legalization of marijuana in Alaska. She's not looking to continue a career in broadcasting.

TOTAL stupidity! If and when she finally grows up, she won't be able to erase that from either her employment record or her memory!

Not exactly. She ended her news career. It may still be possible to cross to a reality tv career or possible acting job.

Yeah, I can't believe that TV newspeople don't have speeches rehearsed for when their colleagues drop the f-bomb and walk off the set.

Do tell.

She will never get another job that is affiliated with any major network again. I'm pro legalization but she took it way too far.

This cost her a career and a lot of money.

I don't think what she did was very bright.
