Brilliant Girl Scout Makes a Killing Selling Cookies Outside Marijuana Clinic

In a brilliant display of savvy entrepreneurship, a 13-year-old girl and her mother set up shop outside a medical marijuana clinic in San Francisco. Their product? Boxes of Tagalogs, Samoas, Thin Mints and other classic girl scout cookies.

Within two hours, Mashable reports that Danielle Lei and her mother Carol sold 117 boxes, which is about a box per minute. That’s 37 more than what they previously sold outside a grocery store during the same two-hour period. Once the munchies set in, patrons at The Green Cross clinic didn’t even stand a chance.

Carol told Mashable that her girls set up cookie stands at different points around San Francisco in order to help them learn about new environments while making cash. She also took this opportunity to talk to her daughter about the medical uses of marijuana.

“You put it in terms that they may understand,” said Carol. “I’m not condoning it, I’m not saying go out in the streets and take marijuana […] It also adds a little bit of cool factor. I can be a cool parent for a little bit.”

At the moment, Danielle is the only scout in her troupe conducting business outside a pot shop. However, the Girl Scouts of Northern California don’t seem to have a problem with it.

“Girls are selling cookies, and they and their parents pick out places where they can make good sales,” said Dana Allen, director of marketing and communications for Girl Scouts of Northern California. “We’re not telling people where they can and can’t go if it’s a legitimate business.”

The Green Cross invited the Leis back this Saturday, February 22 from 4 to 6 pm.

That’s One Pot Tamale – And This California Dispensary Is Giving It Away For Free

pottamales

You should totally take a hit of this tamale.

That’s what they’re saying at the ABC Cooperative, a medical marijuana dispensary in Garden Grove, Calif., where every Friday is “free tamale day.” At least, that’s what I’m guessing they’re saying. I for one have never stepped foot in a marijuana dispensary and would never ever associate with anyone who would frequent such an abominable institution.

Supposing I did though, I’d imagine the prospect of getting free Pineapple Pot flavored tamales every Friday would be pretty damn exciting.

Made off-site, the tamales were first introduced by the company due to high customer demand and are available only to those with medical marijuana cards – along with the regular, non-medicated Chicken, Cheese and Pork flavors, which I’m assuming are available to anyone.

Did I mention they’re free?
