Smartest Kid Ever Sells Girl Scout Cookies Outside a Medical Marijuana Clinic

Smartest Kid Ever Sells Girl Scout Cookies Outside a Medical Marijuana Clinic

Danielle Lei of San Francisco is one smart kid. According to Mashable, the 13-year-old and her mom chose a diabolically brilliant spot to vend Girl Scout cookies: outside the green-painted walls of a medical marijuana clinic. Unsurprisingly, sales were, um, high—the resourceful Scout dispensed 117 cookie boxes in two hours, 37 more than she managed to sell outside a neighborhood Safeway grocery store the following day. The Green Cross signed on completely:

"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 in an email. "It's all about location, and what better place to sell Girl Scout cookies than outside a medical cannabis collective?"

Whatever your personal opinions are re:the Girl Scouts you can’t deny that’s American free enterprise at work. Find a need and capitalize on it. Too bad she couldn’t adjust the cookie prices as well.
This resourceful young lady has a bright future ahead for her if the government doesn’t get in her way...

you know... what’s interesting is that I have known this most of my life... and yet... I can’t recall EVER seeing a fat person smoking weed...

If anything they are usually stick thin.

Of course. Why didn't I think of this?

Everybody knows that women who have just let a doctor suction a living being out of them are usually - and inexplicably - ravenous afterwards.

“Is outside the abortion clinic next?”

‘Munchies Syndrome’ prompted her decision to sell cookies outside teh Grass Store.

Who, other than Hannibal the Canniba, would have a stimulated appetite due to an abortion clinic?

And then the government would come down on her like a ton of bricks for violating a whole list of regulations. That would end her entrepreneurial spirit.

Actually, the girl stumbled upon a brilliant idea, after a fashion.

Many of the people who use medical marijuana do so while undergoing chemotherapy. Because of the harsh effects of some types of chemo, patients vomit a lot, and can’t even hold down water. At a time when their bodies are consuming far more calories than normal, this starvation reduces the amount of time for the chemo to fight the cancer before they starve to death.

Just by being able to eat, they might extend their lives for a month or two to perhaps four or six, and that may be enough time to stop the cancer.

But just importantly, *what* they eat matters. Oddly enough, because the intention of the chemo is to *create* “free oxygen radicals” in the tumor, they do not want to eat antioxidant foods, because they will fight their chemo.

So most “health food” is right out. Instead they *might* need high protein, high fat, high complex carbohydrate foods, with the exception of simple sugars, which might “feed” their tumor.

And since right after using marijuana might be the optimal time for them to eat, having a restaurant specializing in such rich food just outside the clinic would be optimal.

But because there are a bunch of different kinds of chemo and cancer, particular menus would have to be tailor made by oncologists.

“Bright future? Much of the proceeds go to Planned Parenthood.”

Knowing that the members get no money themselves for their efforts, do you really believe she’s going to be selling Girl Scout cookies for the rest of her life??

I just cannot champion girls, minors, who are being used who’s parents allow them to be used by the Girls scouts who have been usurped by radical feminists.

It’s not just unimpressive, it is disgusting.

I think kids who have a bright future are those whose parents look into the source of the organizations they support with time and effort.

stanne, unwrap that cloak of self-righteousness you have so tightly around you and read what I originally posted as well as posts 33 & 34. We’re not saluting the GSA or it’s political philosophy. We are, however, saluting a young lady whose business acumen is admirable. Personally, I have no great love for the GSA or any other organization that uses children to enrich its coffers for whatever the reason, and that includes the school candy that their parents push on their coworkers every year. Oh, and just so you’ll know, I’m pro-life too.
OK, I’m through now, so you can hop back on your pedestal and go back to looking down at the rest of us flawed capitalists...

Anticipating young girls becoming hookers, or selling Trojans to some other hooker’s clients? You’re a real class act there, Monty. I know they’re gonna love you over at DU.
Now please excuse me, but after talking to you I have this need to go wash my hands...

And you were the one fantasizing about Girl Scouts becoming hookers and handing out condoms.. I suggest YOU try here; http://www.apa.org for professional help, since you seem obsessed about the subject. And before your next snide retort, I had to go look up the address for you. But it appears you might want to copy it down...

Rather than continue this pointless discussion with you and your twisted fantasies, I’ll end my part of this conversation with a great line from The Addams Family;

Girl Scout: Is this made from real lemons?
Wednesday: Yes.
Girl Scout: I only like all-natural foods and beverages, organically grown, with no preservatives. Are you sure they’re real lemons?
Pugsley: Yes.
Girl Scout: : Well, I’ll tell you what. I’ll buy a cup if you buy a box of my delicious Girl Scout cookies. Do we have a deal?
Wednesday: Are they made from real Girl Scouts?

You have yourself a real good day, and remember that address...
