JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The Alaska Public Offices Commission has closed its investigation into whether a marijuana activist used crowdsourcing funds to advocate for a ballot initiative to legalize recreational use of pot.

In a letter to Charlo Greene Monday, the commission’s executive director, Paul Dauphinais, said based on a review of readable materials provided by Greene, the commission sees no apparent violations of campaign laws and has closed its investigation.

He noted that a bank statement provided was highly redacted but that a court order allowed Greene to produce a bank statement with all information redacted except for entries reflecting campaign expenditures.

Greene is the professional name of Charlene Egbe, who gained attention last year in using an expletive on-air as she quit her TV reporting job after revealing she supported pot legalization.
