When you think about people who would be in the market for Girl Scout Cookies (as in the actual cookies, not the marijuana strain), stoners would have to be near the top of that list. But Girl Scouts are currently not permitted to sell near dispensaries. But that has now changed, at least in Colorado.
The Girl Scouts of Colorado announced that they have changed their policy so that members can sell cookies outside "adult-oriented businesses." This includes liquor stores, bars, casinos and marijuana dispensaries. Girl Scouts will still need permission to sell the cookies at on-site locations, as they do with any other business. This means they need the permission of the business and property owners before they can set up shop.
Of course, this isn't the first time people have thought of this idea. Just last month a Girl Scout in San Diego made headlines for selling cookies outside of a dispensary. Apparently California did not have a similar ban on "adult-oriented businesses."
The Girl Scout council says this move "empowers Scouts to be the best cookie entrepreneurs they can be." What that really means is they realize how many cookie sales they've been passing up by not selling to people leaving marijuana dispensaries. As usually happens, whenever money's involved, people suddenly become pro-marijuana.
We can't wait until someone says this will lead to Girl Scouts becoming little stoners.
