Girl Scouts selling cookies outside marijuana shops

Feb. 21, 2014 at 1:48 PM

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 21 (UPI) -- A San Francisco mom said her 13-year-old Girl Scout is selling lots cookies after setting up shop in front of medical marijuana dispensaries.

Carol Lei said taking her daughter, Danielle, to sell cookies outside cannabis shops in the city has been a successful business decision -- helping her work toward her goal of selling 1,200 boxes -- and gaving her the opportunity to teach Danielle and her fellow scouts about medical marijuana, the East Bay Express, Oakland, Calif., reported Friday.

"They learn that they're not drugged out," Lei said. "Many have serious needs, and are just a little different.

"I feel like it's safe," she said. "There's always a security guard and cameras everywhere."

The East Bay Express said pictures posted online indicate other groups of Girl Scouts have been setting up shop outside pot stores elsewhere in California and in Colorado, where recreational use of marijuana was legalized this year.
