    Default Girl Scout Sells 117 Boxes of Cookies Outside a Marijuana Dispensary

    Want some Girl Scout cookies to go along with your legal weed in Colorado? You'll have to plan ahead.
    Girl Scouts of Colorado officials are defending the organization's decision to effectively bar its members from selling cookies outside the state's marijuana dispensaries.
    "There's a place for everything, and just like a liquor store or a gun show, a marijuana dispensary isn't a place for young girls to be selling cookies," Rachelle Trujillo, chief marketing officer for the Girl Scouts of Colorado, told the Huffington Post. "There are plenty of other options for customers of adult businesses to purchase cookies at other locations."
    In response to a California Girl Scout's ingenious strategy to sell cookies outside a medical marijuana dispensary, the Girl Scouts of Colorado issued a statement on its Facebook page saying members may not sell cookies outside recreational and medical dispensaries.
    "Girl Scouts of Colorado doesnít allow girls to sell cookies outside of any adult-oriented business, whether that is a bar, strip club, casino, liquor store or marijuana dispensary," the statement read. "We recognize these are legitimate businesses, but we donít feel they are an appropriate place for girls to be selling cookies in Colorado."
    Some commenters applauded the decision, but others questioned the logic.


    "Grocery stores sell cigarettes and beer," one user wrote. "Is it ok for them to sell the cookies outside of grocery stores?"
    "While I do not agree with Colorado legalization of marijuana, I feel that this is a huge missed opportunity to increase our sales," wrote another.
    Last week, Danielle Lei, a 13-year-old Girl Scout, sold 117 boxes of Girl Scout cookies outside San Francisco's Green Cross medical marijuana dispensary in just two hours.
    The Girl Scouts of Northern California supported her strategy.
    "The mom decided this was a place she was comfortable with her daughter being,Ē Dana Allen, director of marketing and communications for Girl Scouts of Northern California, told Mashable. "We're not telling people where they can and can't go if it's a legitimate business."
    In Phoenix, Lexi Menees, an 8-year-old inspired by Danielle, set up shop outside a medical marijuana dispensary.
    "For me, this isnít anything controversial," Lexi's mother, Heidi Carney, told the Associated Press. "Itís medication. Itís no different than standing in front of a Walgreens or a CVS."

    I don't smoke it, and even don't like the smell, but this is pretty awesome.

    I thought the girl and/or her parents, were fucking brilliant, for selling them there. Hell, I hope they just go across the street, and sell them there.

    I always get the Samoas cookies. Nobody else in my house likes them, so the entire box is MINE. Even my scavenger kids hate them.
