When I was a Girl Scout, many Samoas ago, no one seemed at all concerned that we were set up outside a gas station where truckers and townies bought their booze.
Marijuana has always been known to give people "the munchies", and since people love these little cookies, it should come as no surprise that when a 9-year-old scout and her father set up outside a dispensary, there was a boom in their sales. Meanwhile, the Girl Scouts themselves offered contradicting comments to the media.
Officials are the Girl Scout Headquarters in San Diego, California say she's not doing anything wrong.
Girl Scout Cookies pretty much sell themselves every year because.
As long as the scout has a parent or guardian present, they're allowed to drag those little boxes of crack around and sell to as many unsuspecting people as possible.
The strategy seems to be a successful one.
However, this situation fell into a gray area because the girl didn't set up a booth outside the store; she cruised the sidewalk with boxes of cookies in a wagon, according to local reports.
Indeed, the munchies are perhaps one reason that Scouts are seeing such success when selling cookies outside of pot shops.
"Get some Girl Scout Cookies with your GSC today until 4pm!" they wrote on Instagram, referencing a strain of weed named after Girl Scout cookies.
The girl sold more than 300 boxes over about six hours, local ABC affiliate 10News reported, citing her father.
Since the story broke, the unidentified San Diego Scout has been the subject of late-night TV jokes and Twitter praise, applauding her creativity and marketing savvy.
It probably also helped that Urban Leaf posted this advertisement for the young lady before her cookie wagon opened for business. Once they're approved Bushan said this would have been a major no no if the girl had a table on the door.
