What's cooler than a Girl Scout selling cookies?
A business-savvy Girl Scout who sets up shop outside a cannabis clinic to rev up her sales skills.
Thirteen-year-old Girl Scout Danielle Lei did brisk business last Monday selling Dulce de Leches and other flavors outside The Green Cross medical marijuana clinic in San Francisco, Mashable reported.
Danielle was able to sell 117 boxes within two hours outside the cannabis clinic -- 37 more than what she sold within the same time frame at a local Safeway the next day, according to Mashable.
"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."
Bert said that Danielle's mother had contacted The Green Cross to set up the sale outside the store.
"We were happy to have her (Danielle) come -- she is extremely business savvy," Bert said.
Danielle's mother Carol takes her two daughters to different places around San Francisco to sell cookies so that "they can learn about different environments," Mashable reported.
Carol told NBC Bay Area that the family is not doing any interviews.
Green Cross is so happy with the outcome that they have invited Danielle back to their store on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 4 to 6 p.m. for a repeat performance.
The Green Cross posted about Danielle's visit on its Facebook page, including a link to an external poll, which asks people whether Girl Scouts should sell cookies outside legal marijuana shops.
The Girl Scouts of Northern California don't have a problem with this business strategy.
Dana Allen, the organization's marketing and communications director, told Mashable that "the mom decided this was a place she was comfortable with her daughter being at."
"We're not telling people where they can and can't go if it's a legitimate business," she said.
That is inspiring! I love it! You go girl!
When is the field trip to a bath house planned?
This is soooo SanFran.........learn early how to make money off of another person’s affliction. I think her next set up should be in front of Jenny Craig’s.
She’s brilliant. hahahaha
Location location location!
what kind of parent(s) are they?
Parents the understand business?
Yeah, and keep up your affiliation with the biggest murderers of unborn and newly born babies in this country.
And congratulations of the horde of homosexual leaders you have in D.C. The GSA has gone the pathetic way of the Boy Sodomites of America. What a pathetic disgrace!
Bad and immoral parents
Her parents probably work at Planned Parenthood or make porn or something.
Yeah, there’s a logical leap that anyone would make. Anyone who is insane.
Poor personal choices should not be a crime. I love how the there are control freaks on both the left and the right try to use the power of law to enslave people. Extreme sports are not good for your health rather so should skateboarders and skiers be made into criminals? Some people live by sucking the joy out of life by trying to reduce life to work, eat, and sleep.
It would be better if you could find some munchies to sell the stoners that would benefit some conservative group or company.
