Girl Scout Cookie Program promotes female entrepreneurship

Girl Scout sells more than 300 boxes of cookies at San Diego marijuana dispensary

But since the girl had cookies loaded in a rolling cart, was staying on the sidewalk and was accompanied by an adult, she was technically within the rules, Alison Bushan, a spokeswoman for Girl Scouts San Diego, told the Union-Tribune. Her cookie sales are through-the-roof, thanks in large part to her new go-to location. The cheeky post calls on customers to pick up some of the treats when they buy 'GSC, ' a type of marijuana product flavoured like Girl Scout Cookies.

According to the young entrepreneur's dad, she sold upwards of 300 boxes of cookies in about six hours.

There are eight different types of Girl Scout cookies from Little Brownie Bakers; Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-si-dos, Tagalongs, Savanah Smiles, and Trefoils are all $5 while S'mores and Toffee-tastics are $6. They aren't allowed to set up a booth, but they can take a parent along or a guardian.

Girl Scouts all across the nation started selling their famous cookies last month and will continue to do so, sometimes in front of marijuana dispensaries, through April. "Bring them with - shopping is more fun with friends anyways", the company wrote.

The controversial move of Girl Scout cookie sales at dispensaries has come with changing times around the country. Locally, all Girl Scout Cookie varieties are $4 per box. If the young girl was only trying to sell cookies from a wagon or even the back of her father's auto, then it falls within the rules of the cookie sales. "Our number one concern is the safety of girls", said the representative.

Girl Scouts of Wisconsin - Badgerland Council serves 23 counties in south-central and southwest Wisconsin, as well as Houston County in Minnesota and Allamakee County in Iowa.
