ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A former Alaska television reporter who quit her job on-air and vowed to work toward legalizing marijuana is involved in a dispute with a business neighbor that’s prompted a flurry of restraining orders.

Marijuana activist Charlo Greene and Sarha Shaubach have filed for seven restraining orders against each other and associates within the past week, Alaska Dispatch News (https://is.gd/u5lym7 ) reported. Shaubach also was arrested after sending a text message, which she called an accident, to Greene.

Greene, founder of the Alaska Cannabis Club, shares the same downtown Anchorage address as Shaubach, owner of the Alaska Center for Alternative Lifestyles, which includes a bondage and masochism leather boutique.

Shaubach said the dispute began when she tried to bring in a fire inspector, whom Greene wouldn’t allow into her portion of the building.

Because that section wasn’t inspected, Greene can’t host parties there but held an event last week anyway, according to Shaubach.



Greene, whose legal name is Charlene Egbe, declined to discuss the allegations in detail with the newspaper. She did not immediately return a call to her club from The Associated Press on Thursday.

“It’s really, really draining when we’re doing something that we know it’s going to be a good thing for our community,” Greene told the newspaper. “It sucks having all these hurdles and having so many things trying to distract us.”

During a live newscast in September, Greene revealed herself to be the owner of a medical marijuana business and quit her job with a four-letter tirade.

Shaubach said she had events planned for the weekend that had to be canceled after the dispute.

“I attempted to do this in all the right ways, but I’m over it,” she said.

Greene, too, said she was weary of the back-and-forth.
