Girl Scout cookie season is the most wonderful time of the year for just about everyone, but especially for stoners.
There isn’t a pothead alive who doesn’t have rows of Thin Mints lining their freezer (and for good reason, because they are delicious).
A brilliant Girl Scout in San Francisco decided to use the munchies to her advantage and set up shop outside of a medical marijuana clinic, according to Mashable.
Danielle Lei and her mother Carol spent Presidents’ Day outside of The Green Cross and sold 117 boxes in just two hours. Compare that to the next day when the Leis sold cookies outside of a Safeway and only sold half as many.
Carol had called The Green Cross to get permission to sell cookies outside of the clinic and, of course, they said yes.
“It’s no secret that cannabis is a powerful appetite stimulant [Ed note: no sh*t], so we knew this would be a very beneficial endeavor for the girls,” a staff member at The Green Cross told Mashable in an email. “It’s all about location, and what better place to sell Girl Scout cookies than outside a medical cannabis collective?”
Girl Scouts of Northern California had no problem with its members selling cookies outside of a marijuana clinic, but the buzz kills over at Girl Scouts of Colorado said that they don’t allow their girls to use this genius sales tactic, even though small amounts of weed are legal there.
If you are wondering, we don’t allow our Girl Scouts to sell cookies in front of marijuana shops or liquor stores/bars.
