One San Diego, California, Girl Scout (or moreso, her parent who knows what marijuana is) has gotten in on the cash grab, peddling her cookie wagon outside of a local weed dispensary and selling 312 cookie boxes in six hours.
ABC affiliate 10News reported that the girl and her father, who are remaining anonymous, were well within their right, as they set up shop in the parking lot instead of at the store’s door—official booth sales at approved locations don’t start for another week.
The shop, Urbn Leaf, even advertised for the girl on its Instagram account, encouraging patrons to get some real cookies with their “GSC”-flavored products. As far as the Girl Scout is concerned, however, the store is “just a place where adults go to hang out after work,” her father says he’s told her.
This smart cookie is far from the only Scout who’s targeted THC-induced patrons with the munchies—stories of Scouts selling at dispensaries go back to San Francisco and Colorado in 2014. However, she really doesn’t know how easy she’s got it. Back in my day, going door to door on the weekdays, learning how to make change when handed a $20 bill, facing rejection over and over again—the Scout life roughed you up! There were no marijuana dispensaries to lure in customers, or square cash card readers for when people “only have their credit cards.” I call foul!
Regardless, congrats on the sales, young Scout. Have fun on your way to earning an Amazon Echo, or whatever it is they’re bribing you with these days.
