Girl Scout banks on the munchies

Girl Scout is selling cookies at a cannabis clinic in San Francisco

Looking to drum up some new business, 13-year-old Girl Scout Danielle Lei and her mom set out for a San Francisco medical marijuana clinic on Monday, armed with boxes of Tagalongs, Dulce de Leches and other cookie varieties she and other scouts sell annually.
Any patients at The Green Cross with the munchies didn't stand a chance. In two hours on President's Day, Danielle sold 117 boxes outside the clinic — people gobbled up all her Dulce de Leches and blazed through the Tagalongs. According to her mother, Carol, that's 37 more boxes than what she sold during the same two-hour period outside a small Safeway the next day.

Carol said her two middle-school-aged daughters have sold Girl Scout cookies outside a medical marijuana clinic before, though this was the first time they stopped by The Green Cross. She usually has them set up shop at various points around San Francisco so they can learn about different environments while earning some cash. Plus, Carol figured this might be a good way to start a conversation about drugs and how some use marijuana as medicine while others just get high.

“You put it in terms that they may understand,” Carol said. “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.”

1. That's actually pretty funny in a way but in a way not

fucking money once again trumps morals, responsibility and principles.

2. Say what?

Looks like a simple demonstration of entrepreunerial cleverness to me.

Cannabis clinics are LEGAL. There is no moral question involved by deciding to sell to a receptive audience.

What again is your problem with this? What "morals, responsibility and principles" are being trumped here?

3. Because the Girl Scout organization is always

acting high and mighty and is all about protecting your body, good health and not using drugs etc (and for the record, I don't agree with the Girl Scouts) yet when there's a buck to make, Oh well!

4. I see...

...I misunderstood your point.

However I will point out that it is the individual Girl Scouts / and their mother who made this decision, not the Girl Scouts in general.

But I do see what you were getting at.

5. To be fair, though...

I don't think anybody...least of all the GSA...would say that girl was advocating the use of pot, or using it herself.

She was only demonstrating an awareness of where she might be able to sell a whole lot of cookies.



And she was right...

6. She was right about sales potential and if my kid was selling cookies

I would encourage her to do the same. I was pointing out the hypocritalness of the GSA. If they truly practiced what they preached they would tell the kids not sell in front of the clinics
