Combining the two just got a whole lot easier in Colorado, where Girl Scouts can now officially sell cookies outside cannabis dispensaries, according to the Cannabist.
Girl Scouts of Colorado updated its policy for the 2018 cookie season to treat “adult-oriented” businesses, including marijuana dispensaries, the same as any other business, council spokeswoman AnneMarie Harper told the Denver Post on Friday.
“(Potential cookie sales) sites are now all treated the same, and approval of those sites is contingent on whether they meet our guidelines and safety requirements,” she said. “Safety is the biggest concern.”
The new policy gives more control to leaders, parents, and scouts within each troop, Harper said. Consequently, this weekend’s location listing includes bars, a tattoo parlor, coffee shops, and at least one dispensary.
“We think the new policy empowers Scouts to be the best cookie entrepreneurs they can be,” Harper said.
Up until this year, Girl Scouts were not allowed to set up shop outside dispensaries, although some Scouts found ways around the rules. In San Diego, for example, one anonymous scout and her father sold boxes out of the parking lot of a dispensary—and sold a whopping 300 boxes. If her sales are any indication, Girl Scouts is about to see an explosion in sales.
