Girl Scout Takes Huge Advantage of California's Legal Weed

Yes, Selling Girl Scout Cookies Outside a Legal Weed Dispensary Is Genius Girl Scout Who Sold Over 300 Cookies Outside Of Weed Dispensary May Be Penalized

I think we might be looking at the next leader of the Girl Scouts, you guys.

A photo posted on Instagram by San Diego marijuana dispensary Urbn Leaf showed the Girl Scout with an armful of cookies in front of a Mission Bay storefront. "Get some Girl Scout Cookies with your GSC today until 4pm!" read the caption, encouraging customers to bring their friends.

She wasn't actually the first smart Girl Scout to sell in front of a dispensary; Girl Scout Danielle Lei made global headlines in 2014 and 2015 when she sold over 200 boxes in two hours by selling in front of the Green Cross medical marijuana dispensary in San Francisco. Meanwhile, the Girl Scouts themselves offered contradicting comments to the media.

So, says Alison Bushan of Girls Scouts of San Diego, "if that's what they say they were doing... then they were right within the rules". I understand the rules set in place by the Girl Scouts, but selling 312 boxes of Girl Scout cookies should be celebrated, not condemned. "The amusing thing is, after the news story ran, we had more Girl Scouts show up over the weekend".

The strategy seems to be a successful one. Boxes now sell for as much as $5 in parts of the country, so she probably raised more than $1,500.

Domestic stocks, however, rallied after realising about the positive corporate earnings and investors' optimism of Asian markets. The RBI has projected a growth rate of 7.2 per cent for 2018-19 as the GST rollout stabilises and credit offtake improves.


Selling Girl Scout cookies is meant to accomplish more than just distributing Samoas and Thin Mints to the world.

California has legalized recreational marijuana for sale and consumption, but selling the cookies outside a dispensary has drawn criticism with some calling it bad parenting, the Union-Tribune reported.

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.

One Girl Scout's entrepreneurial creativity may cost her. Once they're approved Bushan said this would have been a major no no if the girl had a table on the door.
