Girl Scout Does Brisk Business Selling Cookies Outside San Francisco Pot Club
NBC Bay Area ^ | Friday, Feb 21, 2014 | Riya Bhattacharjee

Posted on 02/22/2014 12:15:14 PM PST by nickcarraway

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.

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.

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!

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.

If they weren’t in the business of slaughtering nascent human beings, I’d applaud her ingenuity. Getting money from potheads to kill babies.....dumbing down society and killing those who might help improve it.

The closest Junior College some 40 miles away set up a branch
campus in my town quite a few years ago. Natural foods folks
later installed a fair sized market complete w/a large deli across
the street. Not my choice of foods for the most part but they do
a monster business. If you know about JCs you know the average
student age is not 19 or 20 but much higher like late 20s or 30s.
These are what I call hippie libs and they spend lots of $$ in
these “Hippie Marts”. If I could I would put up one of these
stores near every JC everywhere. When I become wealthy I would
donate big bucks to conservative causes and laugh at the fools
who are supporting causes they despise.

Western Washington Girl Scout Council issued a statement today that they don’t recommend any of their girls to sell in front of pot shop. Surprisingly, Colorado’s GS Council said the same thing.

If a responsible adult is with the girls and closely supervising them, to quote Hillary “What difference does it make?”

“Are you serious?”

Yes.

“Or liberal or a cannabis user yourself?”

Classic liberal, never used cannabis, any other street drug, or alcohol, and I'm not a hater either.

“Your comment doesn’t reflect the typical FR response IME...unless you didn’t read the article first...”

Nearly half agree with me, yes I read the article before commenting.

Dana Allen, the organization’s marketing and communications director, axed “Where her daughter at?”

And the mother wants the girl to see differently environments. I wonder if she’ll take her to see the “hood”.

She could be “selling to drug users” anywhere she sells. Would that also mean I “condone” selling to drug users? All I condone is her freedom to sell cookies whereever she has a right to sell them. That is not the same as “condoning a girlscout selling to drug users”.
