Enterprising Girl Scout Sells Cookies Outside Pot Clinic Because She Understands Location, Location, Location

safe_image.phpThis is amazingly brilliant. A 13-year-old Girl Scout picked the absolute best location to sell her cookies at, in front of the San Francisco Green Cross Medical Marijuana Clinic. Look out all you real estate moguls because this little kid obviously knows a lot about marketing. The Girl Scout, named Danielle was able to sell 117 boxes within two hours outside the cannabis clinic which was 37 more boxes than she usually sold standing outside of her local grocery store. From NBC Bay Area:

“It’s no secret that cannabis is an appetite stimulant — so it’s not shocking that a lot of our patients came and purchased cannabis, and then saw the cookies and purchased them,” said Holli Bert, a spokesperson for The Green Cross. “But it wasn’t just patients, staff members and neighbors also bought the cookies. I personally bought five boxes. It turned out to be a big success.”


Danielle’s efforts were such a success that she has been invited back to sell more cookies.  The Green Cross Facebook page is totally into the spirt of this, and they posted this meme:



and they also have a poll on their page asking if Girl Scouts should be able to sell outside pot dispensaries. I think it’s awesome, and incredibly smart, and as long as parents are OK with it I see nothing wrong with it. And now I want some Thin Mints.

    Brilliant! I would think it was probably her parents idea (I hope a girl scout is still too young to understand about the munchies) but either way – VERY smart!

      The article states her mom wanted to bring her to different places where she would encounter different sorts of people. <3

      It said she’s 13, not 7. I’m pretty sure she knows people in school who smoke pot.

    I am chuckling at this so hard. Stroke of brilliance. ;) Also, I too want thin mints…

    Brilliant. I sort of wish there were pot dispensaries around where my parents live when I had to sell chocolate bars for a fundraiser as a kid. Selling at the farmers market didn’t quite cut it sometimes.

      Oh man, my kid is always selling candy bars for choir. I won’t let him go door to door so we always end up buying like 20 and using them as kid bribery. he also sells to his pals at school but yeah, we need a pot clinic. I HATE school fundraising, I would rather just give them a check

      I wasn’t allowed to go door to door either, just harass family and people at the local farmer’s market (with my mom, of course). I hate harassing people for money, even with candy bars.

      And I couldn’t even eat what I sold, because it had pecans in it. :(

    That’s how Ross sold all the Girl Scout cookies when he had to sell them on Friends!

      Cookie duuuuude!

  • Paul White

    This is my retirement plan; open a pot shop and sell it cheap, but have a munchy’s section with high markups.

      I’ve been told that the medical marijuana industry in California is lucrative in general. An interesting thought for those in need of a career change, isn’t it?

    Who IS that guy on the memes? I seem him all the time and I have NO idea who he is!

    More reasons to love the Girl Scouts!!

  • Crusty Socks

    Girl Scout: “hey mister, you haven’t paid for the cookies yet.”

    Pot Head: “uhhh, duuude, are you sure man?”

    GS: “Positive”

    PH: “Alriiight, here’s my money”

    GS: “hey mister, you haven’t paid for the cookies yet.”

      As a stoner… wait. What?

    Well different areas have different rules. Where I am at girls can not set up a booth without permission from the cookie booth coordinator–this is too prevent troops from setting up booths right next too each other and to make it easier on local business so that they are not asked by 100 different troop leaders and/or parents for booth locations. And the cookie booth coordinator has rules they have to go by, like not setting up booths at locations that could be questionable–like at places that serve alcohol. I’m surprise that her local council has not come down on her hard. We do not have pot clinics here–not yet, it looks like there is a good chance we will be getting them–but if we do I’m sure we will not be allowed to sell cookies there even if they invite us.

      ” I’m surprise that her local council has not come down on her hard.”

      It’s San Francisco, where bondage street fairs are a family destination, where the streets of the tony tourist districts are dotted with the feces of the homeless, where people smoke pot on public transit and the driver doesn’t flinch.

      Trust me, no one cares.

    I was the top cookie seller in my hometown growing up. In Washington state, where marijuana is now legal. IMAGINE HOW MANY I COULD’VE SOLD TO PEOPLE ON DRUGS.

    ….actually, I stayed in girl scouts through my senior year of HS and sold them to people I went to community college with (I did a program where I spent my senior year taking community college classes instead). I know a few of those people were on drugs.

    Such marketing. Very Wow! Much smart!

      Wow. Much funny. Very doge meme use. Such commentness.

    Oh man! Genius.

    Another great location to sell is outside of a methadone clinic or Suboxone doctor. No joke, opiates make you crave sweets for the first week or two you’re on them – or get your dose changed – and I guarantee there will always be patients getting inducted or re-inducted who would appreciate a box of Thin Mints.
