ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Charlo Greene Show Kickstarter is live and working to raise $110,000. Each day of the first leg of the campaign, which ends March 8, Charlo is releasing a video previewing the content that can be expected on the Oprah Winfrey style show for weed. Watch the amazing campaign video HERE.

"What's happening now is the story of our time, our revolution and our legacy," Charlo said. "I'm challenging the international cannabis community, with the rest of the world watching, to fund this project and give our movement the voice it deserves - The Charlo Greene Show."

The Charlo Greene Show is committed to destigmatizing cannabis and effecting social change by promoting awareness and knowledge of the cannabis community and burgeoning industry through compelling, heart felt and quality video content.

Viewers can expect to get up close and personal with some of the marijuana industry's most prominent brands and personalities that are supporting this effort throughout the duration of the campaign, along with daily cannabis updates that Charlo calls, 'Pot Topics'.  

Supporters can donate as little as $1 to the Kickstarter campaign to subscribe to the daily video feed, $40 for a digital download of the Making The Charlo Greene Show documentary, brand and product integration opportunities for cannabis businesses and begin at $250, and backers can pledge up to $10,000 to have The Charlo Greene Show come film in their city.

Watch previews for The Charlo Greene Show on CharloGreene.com and though the Kickstarter campaign updates. Supporters and press are encouraged to take advantage of opportunities to film with The Charlo Greene Show in Denver, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Baltimore, Las Vegas and Washington DC during the campaign.

About Charlo: 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.

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.

Charlo is fast establishing herself as a bona fide force for international 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.
