It’s official: No Girl Scout cookies outside Colorado’s pot shops

The Girl Scouts of Colorado nixed a seemingly brilliant moneymaking idea by forbidding their members from selling their iconic cookies outside Colorado’s newest businesses — retail marijuana stores.

Of all the old tales about marijuana, one of the truest is that smoking pot can produce the munchies, a seemingly insatiable urge to nosh on junk food while stoned. An enterprising Girl Scout in California recently sold 117 boxes of cookies outside a medical marijuana dispensary in just two hours.

While this seems like a match made in heaven, the Girl Scouts of Colorado clarified that no such entrepreneurialism will be allowed in the state that is pioneering legal marijuana sales.

“Consistent with our policy for many years now, Girl Scouts of Colorado doesn’t allow girls to sell cookies outside of any adult-oriented business, whether that is a bar, gun show, casino, liquor store or marijuana dispensary,” said spokeswoman Rachelle Trujillo, in a statement emailed to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“We recognize these are legitimate businesses, but we don’t feel they are an appropriate place for girls to be selling cookies in Colorado,” she wrote.
