A Girl Scout has decided that setting up in front of a grocery store or at mom and dad's work is for the birds. She's opted to sell to an audience that she knows will buy when they have the munchies. 

A recent article on Mashable shared the story of Danielle Lei, a savvy Girl Scout who set up shop in front of a medical cannabis collective named "The Green Cross" in San Francisco. It's proven to be successful. Carol Lei, Danielle's mother, tells Mashable that in 2 hours, Danielle sold 117 boxes of the tasty cookies - about 40 more than what she sold the day before outside a supermarket. 

Is mom condoning pot use? "I'm not condoning it," Caroline told Mashable reporter Colin Daileda. Instead, she is using the business lesson to open up a conversation about drug use, and how some people use marijuana as medicine.

Before Colorado Girl Scouts start getting any ideas, the Girl Scouts of Colorado has released a Tweet, saying "we don't allow our Girl Scouts to sell cookies in front of marijuana shops or liquor stores/bars."

I can understand where they are coming from. It's probably in the best interest of the girls' safety.
