One-hundred seventeen boxes in two hours. That’s how many Girl Scout cookies 13-year-old Danielle Lei sold outside the Green Cross medical marijuana dispensary in San Francisco, Calif., last Monday.
It’s a common sight this time of year to see young Girl Scouts with their trademark vests sitting behind booths outside stores and making the neighborhood rounds to sell the famous Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, and Trefoils. But this may be the first time anyone’s heard of a girl targeting medical marijuana users.
“It’s no secret that cannabis is a powerful appetite stimulant, so we knew this would be a very beneficial endeavour for the girls,” Holli Bert, a Green Cross staff member, said.
Danielle’s mother, Carol Lei, has had her two daughters set up their booths at various locations throughout San Francisco to teach them about different environments. She also told CBS station KPIX that the choice of sales location gave her an opportunity to discuss the topic of drugs with her daughter.
