After a San Francisco Girl Scout sold 117 boxes of Girl Scout cookies in two hours outside of a medical marijuana dispensary, the organization’s Colorado branch issued a statement that they do not want their trying the same thing outside of newly legal marijuana retailers.

Via LA Times:

On Monday, Danielle Lei and her mother set up shop outside the Green Cross store with the cookies. With the store’s blessing, Lei sold 117 boxes in two hours.

Holli Bert, a spokeswoman for the Green Cross, said that after just 45 minutes, Lei had to call for backup cookies to replenish her stock.

“You put it in terms that they may understand,” Lei’s mother, Carol, told Mashable. “I’m not condoning it, I’m not saying go out in the streets and take marijuana. It also adds a little bit of cool factor. I can be a cool parent for a little bit.”

According to Kelly Parisi, chief communications officer from Girl Scouts of the USA, each region of Girl Scouts has its own guidelines…

Apparently Colorado isn’t happy…

The Girl Scouts of Colorado issued a tweet expressing their disapproval of the situation. “If you are wondering, we don’t allow our Girl Scouts to sell cookies in front of marijuana shops or liquor stores/bars” read the tweet.

      To be fair , I think a lot of people did.

      • *bubble bursted*

        Ya know for a cutesy pony, you are kind of a poo-face!

        Serious though…

        What’s the deal with this?

        They are pretty much using the girls to sell their deliciously addictive cookies. Which are likely more harmful than cannabis is. An acquaintance I knew, who happened to be pothead, would buy like 20 boxes of girl scout cookies. They should be embracing this, not pulling a chic-fila.

          Those cookies are seriously addictive. I’ll suck down a whole sleeve of those little thin mint bastards and two of the peanut butter chocolate ones, weed or no.

    GSA is indoctrination for future patriotic citizens who must be programmed to go to war for big capital without question because god and country will it. Also, I prefer the peanut butter cookies.

    we don’t allow our Girl Scouts to sell cookies
    in front of marijuana shops or liquor stores/bars

    I can understand stayin clear of booze shops and bars
    what with uniformed pubescent girls selling cookies to strangers
    but are pharmacies off limits too?

      Marihuna use increases sexually deviant and violent desires. Pretty sure that’s an established fact.

      • BuzzCoastin | Feb 24, 2014 at 5:33 pm |

        only illegal pot
        medical marijuana cures everything
        improves your self control & makes you smarter
        medical marijuana patients
        are immune to gmo laced cookies

  4. They should set up shop outside abortion clinics since they are contributors to Planned Parenthood.

    The GSA is a sexist organization that thinks girls are too hysterical and incompetent to handle anything more dangerous than a plastic butterknife.

    Why do they hate synergy?

  7. Doing your kid’s job by guilting busy coworkers into buying their cookies = good
    Teaching them good business by selling to people who are legitimately hungry = BAD

  8. Confirming the Girl Scouts hate Capitalism.
