A nine-year-old Girl Scout from San Diego set up shop near a marijuana dispensary and sold over 300 boxes of Girl Scout cookies over Super Bowl weekend. According to KGTV, the young girl, and her father loaded up the cookies in a wagon and spent six hours hanging out near the pot shop selling 312 boxes of cookies.
The dispensary even got involved, taking a photo of the girl and posting it on their Instagram page.
While the nine-year-old was counting her cash, not everybody thought she should be outside a marijuana dispensary. Girl Scouts are allowed to "set up booths to sell cookies outside a business only if they get the proper permit from the business owner and only if it is done between Feb. 9 and March 11," reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. Because the girl did not set up a booth and was just selling them out of a wagon, she was likely within the rules. Even if she was in compliance with the rules, some people do not believe "Pot and Girl Scout Fundraising go hand in hand."
I don't wanna burst anyones bubble but I wonder if it sets a good, moral standard for girl scouts to associate themselves with the munchies. I mean, on one end, its brilliant! On the other, "Pot and Girl Scout Fundraising go hand in hand" might not be the headline you want.— MarkB28 (@ColoradosMark) February 4, 2018

They should have a Capitalist badge made in her honor https://t.co/Uw1QlXyZzl— Mujahed Kobbe (@Moj_kobe) February 6, 2018
What nonsense. It’s a legal business there just like the grocery stores where I see Girl Scouts all the time. Give the kid a bonus merit badge for smart business strategy. https://t.co/ddaORp7xZF— Sarah Rumpf (@rumpfshaker) February 6, 2018
