Girl Scouts Sell Cookies At Pot Dispensaries

One San Francisco Girl Scout is proving to be a shrewd businesswoman by making money off the munchies.

The Green Cross, a marijuana dispensary, posted photos to its Facebook page this week of 13-year-old Danielle Lei selling her cookies outside its doors.

According to her mother, after 45 minutes, Danielle had to call for backup cookies, and within two hours she sold about 117 boxes.

Danielle's mom told KPIX that she thought this was a good opportunity to both show her daughter different areas of their city and to have a mature conversation about drugs.

"[The girls] learn that [users are] not drugged out," her mother told the East Bay Express. "Many have serious needs and are just a little different. And they get hungry after."

This might be a lesson about pot, but Danielle's marijuana money move is also getting her praise as brilliant, savvy and even genius.

KPIX spoke with the Girl Scouts of Northern California, and they're fine with where Danielle set up her stand.
