    Objectively, its not worse. Subjectively, its alot worse. In a perfect world, it should not make a difference, but we dont live in a perfect world. As a side note, I would not sell cookies outside of bars either. Grocery stores with alcohol inside?- yes.

    I dont think the impact is going to be good- at least not outside the liberal bastions of San Francisco etc. What they shpuld have said is something like: "We encourage parents to use discretiion when selecting venues for sales".

    as for the girl scounts yea they are in trouble mostly due to the person that is leading the organization now. they have made some really bad choices.


    The cookie is crumbling: Girl Scouts face financial troubles, declining membership* - NY Daily News

    According to this article they're having a problem with Image and Donations. So maybe the cookie sales at Pot Clubs will improve both?

    They're also struggling with a huge deficit from Pensions and the National Office reducing locals, causing many employees to take an early retirement.

    Since 2003, the Girl Scouts have undergone what they describe as a "complete transformation" aimed at making their programs and image more relevant to a diverse population of girls and parents. Changes have affected uniforms, handbooks, merit badges, program materials, even the logo and the fine print on the boxes of Girl Scout cookies.

    "Our brand, as iconic as it is, was misunderstood — it was dated," Chavez said in an interview in her Manhattan office Friday.

    Yet today the Girl Scouts have about 2.2 million youth members, down from more than 2.8 million in 2003. Donations to the national office and local councils plunged to $104 million in 2011 from nearly $148 million in 2007.

    The biggest change — implemented from 2006 to 2009 by Chavez' predecessor, Kathy Cloninger — was a realignment that slashed the number of local councils from 312 to 112. It was intended to increase efficiency, but resulted in the departure of many longtime employees and volunteers.

    The pension plan had a surplus of more than $150 million in 2007. It now has a deficit of about $347 million, according to GSUSA figures.

    The laws against simple usage has been ridiculous. They have these "maximum minimum" penalties that can really burn you for minor amounts. They shot themselves in the foot with those stupid laws.

    Watch the pot clubs add, "cookie edibles" laced with weed to their menu.
    The clubs already do this.
    They've stolen your idea!!

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    If you like peanut butter and bananas, try a peanut butter and banana sandwich.

    :p
    Jack in the Box was running ads that seemed to be aimed at the stoner crowd.
    Haven't seen those ads for awhile.
    Maybe Taco Bell made Jack an offer he couldn't refuse?
    Maybe I should start a thread in the conspiracy forum?
    Maybe I should have some more GS shortbread cookies with my coffee?
