The Girl Scouts are brilliant.

Courtesy of Raw Story: 

One enterprising Girl Scout saw that Girl Scout cookie season started around the same time as California legalized recreational marijuana and had an idea. 

She set up shop outside the Urbn Leaf marijuana dispensary in San Diego and sold her treats to customers who were about to have the munchies anyway, with the blessing of the store, KGTV-10 reported.

The store cleverly encouraged people to buy Girl Scout cookies from the girl after they bought GSC (a weed strain named after Girl Scout cookies) from the store. The scheme was a success, as the scout sold more than 300 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to Urbn Leaf customers who wanted something to snack on after they lit up later. 

Officially, the Girl Scouts are not huge fans of this practice, which has happened a few times since marijuana legalization has become more and more popular around the United States. The Colorado chapter forbids its scouts from selling outside of dispensaries, but the organization told the Los Angeles Times in 2014 that the rules vary by region.

Yeah, "officially" they are not for the practice, but you know they loved getting all of that sweet, sweet, stoner money. 

Some day this young lady will be running a Fortune 500 company, you wait and see.

    This is a good idea but nothing out of the ordinary genius.

  2. Ah, cookie season.

    I'm flush with cash and only have one box of thin mints left in the freezer.

    Time to stock up.

    Dang. That time of year already? And that is a good idea. Because you have to have a target market.
