This Girl Scout Sold 300 Boxes Of Cookies Outside Marijuana Shop

Believe in the kids, bro. One enterprising Girl Scout had the innovative scheme of her short lifetime when she established shop outside a San Diego marijuana dispensary. Her father told FOX 4 News that she sold more than 300 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies in just six hours.

“I think our customers loved it,” Urbn Leaf’s Savannah Rakofsky said to Mashable. “They went out and bought boxes.”

Not everyone loved it unfortunately. As news spread of this young girl’s impressive feat, the Girl Scouts of San Diego informed the San Diego Union-Tribune that setting up shop in front of the dispensary was against the rules. Why? Because the girl didn’t have a permit and “the dispensary is not an approved site for booth sales.”

Apparently, the rules surrounding enterprising Girl Scouts selling cookies in front of weed shops is a hot topic indeed. It may surprise you that the rules change depending by the state. Whereas the Girl Scouts of Colorado prohibit the selling of cookies at marijuana or liquor storefronts, the Oregon chapter says it’s not against the rules.

Girl Scout Cookies were originally home baked by girl members with moms volunteering as technical advisers. The sale of cookies to finance troop activities began as early as 1917, five years after Juliette Gordon Low started Girl Scouts in the United States. The Mistletoe Troop in Muskogee, Oklahoma, baked cookies and sold them in its high school cafeteria as a service project.
