Got the munchies? Give it up for this savvy, enterprising Girl Scout who picked a prime spot to sell cookies: outside a San Francisco medical marijuana clinic. They say it's all about location. If you stepped outside this clinic, you got an immediate answer to your cookie cravings. Needless to say, girl made a crazy killing.
A Savvy Girl Scout Is Selling Cookies at a Cannabis Clinic in San Francisco
On Monday, 13-year-old Danielle Lei and her mom Carol set up shop outside The Green Cross in San Francisco, enticing munchie-stricken pot partakers with the Girls Scouts of America's famed assortment of Thin Mints, Samoas, Peanut Butter Patties and more. According to Mashable, Danielle cleaned up.
Any patients at The Green Cross with the munchies didn't stand a chance. In two hours on President's Day, Danielle sold 117 boxes outside the clinic — people gobbled up all her Dulce de Leches and blazed through the Tagalongs. According to her mother, Carol, that's 37 more boxes than what she sold during the same two-hour period outside a small Safeway the next day.Yes, Carol, you get cool parent points. It beats tabling outside of a supermarket. And due to popular demand, Danielle will reportedly be back at The Green Cross with her cookies on Saturday. Get it, girl.
Carol said her two middle-school-aged daughters have sold Girl Scout cookies outside a medical marijuana clinic before, though this was the first time they stopped by The Green Cross. She usually has them set up shop at various points around San Francisco so they can learn about different environments while earning some cash. Plus, Carol figured this might be a good way to start a conversation about drugs and how some use marijuana as medicine while others just get high.
"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."
