Girl Scout Sells Over 300 Boxes Of Cookies Outside Dispensary
Oh, the delicious taste of Girl Scout Cookies. And no, this time, we’re not talking about the weed strain. Irresistible even when you’re not high and near impossible to say no to when you are. That’s exactly what one San Diego Girl Scout took advantage of when she set up a table outside a marijuana dispensary.

According to her father, she sold more than 300 boxes of cookies in less than six hours.
Official sales for the cookies don’t start for another week. This scout not only beat the rush but demonstrated some high-level entrepreneurial thinking! Her sales were twenty times the average Girl Scout.
People got even more excited after the dispensary owner Will Senn got on board as well and shared a picture of the Girl Scout on their Instagram promoting the cookies outside of their store. The dispensary in question was Urbn Leaf. The girl’s identity was protected in the photo.
“Get some Girl Scout Cookies with your GSC today until 4pm! Have a friend that wants to #tagalong? Bring them with - shopping is more fun with friends anyways,” Senn posted.
However, the girl’s actions have been met with controversy. Some find the girl’s sales unfair whilst others have been concerned for the security of the young scout.
The chief communications officer from Girl Scouts of the USA Kelly Parisi told the Los Angeles Times that each region of Girl Scouts has its own guidelines.
"All the money stays in local councils, and they make all decisions on how the cookie program is run," she said in a statement. "As always, our primary concern is the safety and well-being of the girls we serve. Volunteers and parents are empowered to relocate their booths if conditions change and the location is no longer suitable."
States like Colorado have gone as far as to ban the sale of cookies outside of dispensaries. However, in California, where this Girl Scout was located, such sales are allowed as long as a parent or guardian is present.
Some investigation has been made by the Girl Scouts into whether the girl was within Girl Scout rules, however, it seems that the girl did nothing wrong. All she’s guilty of is smart-thinking and an entrepreneurial spirit. More power to her!
