Girl Scout Sells Cookies Outside Medical Marijuana Dispensary | Breaking Insider News Story

“Girl Scout Danielle Lei knows how to think outside the box when it comes to selling cookies. The 13-year-old recently set up her cookie stand outside the Green Cross medical marijuana dispensary in San Francisco, Calif. Patients bought out Lei’s supplies in 45 minutes, as reported on the dispensary’s Facebook page, requiring the girl to seek out a larger cookie supply.

In total, Lei sold 117 boxes in only two hours, according to Mashable. The profits from these sales will go to charitable organizations, including several that benefit Alzheimer’s research.

Carol Lei, Danielle’s mom, is on board with Danielle’s unorthodox sales tactics, and not only for the numbers. She believes the experience is a helpful way to start a conversation with her daughter about different kinds of drug use.

“You put it in terms that they may understand,” Carol told Mashable. “I’m not condoning it, I’m not saying go out in the streets and take marijuana.”

The Green Cross was happy to green-light Lei’s cookie stand as well, with staff members buying boxes and keeping their patients updated on Lei’s hours through Facebook.

Even the Girl Scouts of Northern California gave Leis’ endeavor their approval. The group’s director of marketing and communications, Dana Allen, told Mashable that as long as the location was a legitimate business, it was up to parents to choose the place they think their daughters would find success.

Lei’s biggest critic might just be the Girl Scouts of Colorado. While recreational marijuana use is now legal in Colorado, the state’s troops made it clear on Twitter where they stood on cannabis-clinic cookie stands.

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

“You don’t need a MBA to know that the key to sales is to know your demographic.

That’s why Girl Scout Danielle Lei should earn a merit badge in business for setting up shop outside of a medical marijuana dispensary in San Francisco.

Lei sold 117 boxes of Dulce de Leches and Tagalong Girl Scout cookies during a two-hour stint outside The Green Cross pharmacy over Presidents Day weekend. According to her mother, Lei sold 37 more boxes catering to the munchies crowd than what she sold during the same two-hour period outside a Safeway store the next day, proving once again that when it comes to business it’s all about location, location, location.

“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, told Mashable. “It’s all about location, and what better place to sell Girl Scout cookies than outside a medical cannabis collective?”

No MBA or Glengarry Glen Ross style motivational speech necessary for this smart cookie.”
