Girl Scout Nearly Doubles Her Cookie Sales By Setting Up Shop Outside A Cannabis Club

"I'll take 20 boxes, please."
Girl Scout Sets Up Shop Outside Cannabis Club

Thirteen-year-old Girl Scout Danielle Lei had been doing pretty well selling Thin Mints and Samoas outside grocery stores around San Francisco, but she had a feeling she could do better with a more targeted marketing strategy. So she did what any intrepid young businesswoman would do: she set up a cookie table on the sidewalk in front of The Green Cross, a cannabis club. As you might have guessed, Lei’s strategy paid off, big time. She sold 117 boxes in two hours. “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,” Holli Bert, a spokesperson for The Green Cross, told NBC News. “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.” The clinic has invited Lei back to sell cookies this weekend, where she’s sure to shatter sales records. Never underestimate the power of the munchies. [NBC]
