Girl Scout Sells Over 300 Boxes of Cookies in 6 Hours Outside San Diego Marijuana Shop

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – The legalization of California’s marijuana industry and start of Girl Scout cookie sales have created an opportune moment for at least one San Diego girl.

A photo posted on Instagram by San Diego marijuana dispensary Urbn Leaf showed a Girl Scout with an armful of cookies in front of a Mission Bay storefront.

“Get some Girl Scout Cookies with your GSC today until 4 p.m.! Have a friend that wants to #tagalong? Bring them with – shopping is more fun with friends anyways,” the company wrote. “GSC” refers to a product flavored like Girl Scout Cookies.

The scout’s father told 10News his daughter has sold more than 300 boxes in a total of about 6 hours.

Girl Scouts San Diego says booth sales do not start for another week, but that scouts are allowed to sell from wagons as long as they have a parent or guardian present.

“So if that’s what they say they were doing… then they were right within the rules,” said Alison Bushan, of Girl Scouts San Diego.

Bushan said since the scout set up on a wagon and was off the property, the scout was operating within the organization’s rules. Had a booth been set up in front of the business, then a potential problem could occur.

The controversial move of Girl Scout cookie sales at dispensaries has come with changing times around the U.S.

Girl Scouts of America Colorado was prompted to issue a statement in 2014 after a scout reportedly sold more than 100 boxes of cookies in two hours outside a San Francisco dispensary.

“If you are wondering, we don’t allow our Girl Scouts to sell cookies in front of marijuana shops or liquor stores/bars,” the organization’s Colorado branch tweeted.

However, Kelly Parisi, chief communications officer from Girl Scouts of the USA, told the LA Times that each region makes “all decisions on how the cookie program is run. As always, our primary concern is the safety and well-being of the girls we serve.”

Girl Scouts across the U.S. began selling cookies last month and will continue to do so online and in neighborhoods until April.

    You all seen the (brain on drugs commercial), now you see the Liberal Democrats on drugs!
    All you get from drugs are stupid laws passed by Liberal Democrats in congress and the MUNCHIES!
    Way to go California.

        SAN DIEGO — Politically speaking, people in San Diego County cities are among the state’s more conservative, but not the most conservative, according to a ranking of 150 cities based on voter registration.

        Couple of things. One, I guess it’s notably conservative in California. Second, I do remember it having been notably conservative in the late 80s or early 90s, just figured Republicans in that state might have relocated to more tolerable environs.

    I find that pretty disturbing to have a girl scout sell cookies right in front of where they sell marijuana. That certainly doesn’t look very good for the girl scouts. I remember watching cupcake wars on food Network quite a few yrs a go and one Baker put beer in a cupcake which did not impress a girl scout which was a judge. I guess they find marijuana ok . Sickening! I don’t find alcohol or drugs to be fitting at all.

      I find it “disturbing” that this is the second year in a row that this little girl sorted this out and it’s being considered “news.” So WHAT?!

      And, EmojiID, you are a bona fide idjit. Alcohol and drugs have nothing to do with Girl Scouts or their merit badges, you twit.

      I also find it disturbing that the girl scouts would even think to visit such a deplorable place like this. Selling cookies outside of this place subjects them to weed addicts. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of those weed junkies tried to sell those innocent girl scouts bindles of pot. You know what they say, all it takes is one injection of pot and you’re hooked for life. It takes years of good Christian therapy to get these druggies off of that jazz grass. Prayers for those girls that none of them pot injectors tried to slip them a dirty bindle.
