    Girl Scout Does Brisk Business Selling Cookies Outside San Francisco Pot Club

    Girl Scout Does Brisk Business Selling Cookies Outside San Francisco Pot Club | NBC Bay Area

    What's cooler than a Girl Scout selling cookies?

    A business-savvy Girl Scout who sets up shop outside a cannabis clinic to rev up her sales skills.

    Thirteen-year-old Girl Scout Danielle Lei did brisk business last Monday selling Dulce de Leches and other flavors outside The Green Cross medical marijuana clinic in San Francisco, Mashable reported.

    Danielle was able to sell 117 boxes within two hours outside the cannabis clinic -- 37 more than what she sold within the same time frame at a local Safeway the next day, according to Mashable.

    The Girl Scouts of Northern California don't have a problem with this business strategy.

    Dana Allen, the organization's marketing and communications director, told Mashable that "the mom decided this was a place she was comfortable with her daughter being at."

    "We're not telling people where they can and can't go if it's a legitimate business," she said.
    Genius or Incorrect?

    A teenager selling cookies to potheads with the munchies.
    Watch the pot clubs add, "cookie edibles" laced with weed to their menu.

    Seriously, is this the right thing for Troop Leaders to approve? Exposing young teens to an intoxicating substance, reserved for medical and adult uses?

    Genius. Especially here in WA where it is legal.

    I'm not overly swayed, one way or the other. We were poking smot when I was a teenager and it was easy to get, so I'm not sure it's a big deal?

    It was a cagey move for increased sales.

    The Girl Scouts are in serious financial trouble and are also facing growing competition from competitors:

    My guess is that marketing to pot users as "munchy" sales is going to boost the competitors and hurt the Scouts in the long run.

    This is the other angle I was wondering about. The Girl Scouts are self promoted as a wholesome form of activity and learning for teen girls, and I wonder how the perceived effect of combining Marijuana and cookies will impact them?
