When a Girl Scout is setting up to sell cookies, they usually choose a high traffic area where lots of people walk through. But apparently the new move is to set up at a marijuana dispensary.
A 9-year-old Girl Guide, what Canadians call Girl Scouts, set up outside a marijuana dispensary in Edmonton on the first day of marijuana legalization in Canada. The girl sold all 30 boxes of cookies she brought in 45 minutes, netting a quick $120 for less than an hour's work.
“It amazed me how quickly they went,” said the Girl Guide's father. “Even people in cars driving on the avenue there would stop and roll down their window and ask for cookies.”
This isn't the first time that a Girl Scout has used stoners' love of cookies to turn a profit. In fact, the issue has led to some minor controversy for the Girl Scout organization. Some say it may encourage these Girl Scouts to use marijuana. But the organization has not prohibited Scouts from selling at dispensaries, and in Colorado actually endorsed that strategy.
At the end of the day, these people will do what they have to do to sell their cookies.
