An enterprising San Francisco Girl Scout set up her cookie shop outside a local medical marijuana clinic, hoping to lure in some stoners with the munchies.
Not surprisingly, 13-year-old Danielle Lei sold 117 boxes of Girl Scout cookies in her first two hours outside The Green Cross, which her mom says is 37 more than she sold in the same time span at a Safeway.
Lei’s mom Carol said that she contacted The Green Cross beforehand to get their permission. The marijuana shop’s owners were immediately on board with the idea – probably because they were high and had a sudden craving for cookies.
“It’s no secret that cannabis is a powerful appetite stimulant, so we knew this would be a very beneficial endeavor for the girls,” Holli Bert, a staff member at The Green Cross said. “It’s all about location, and what better place to sell Girl Scout cookies than outside a medical cannabis collective?”
Carol figured this might be a good way to start a conversation about drugs, but the real reason she let her daughter sell cookies to stoners is because she wants to be a “cool mom”.
“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.”
Carol can send her daughter to all the weed shops in the country, but she’ll never reach Regina George Mom status.
