Local Girl Scouts not allowed to sell outside ‘adult’ stores

SAN DIEGO — Girl Scout troop 3444 is working hard selling their cookies outside a Kearny Mesa Walmart, but as well as they do, they can’t compete with a fellow Girl Scout in Northern California who is selling her boxes outside a pot shop.

GIRL SCOUT COOKIESEarlier this week, 13-year-old Danielle set up her cookies outside a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco and in two hours she sold 117 boxes.

The Girl Scouts in San Diego do not agree with selling cookies outside a pot dispensary. They issued a statement saying “We do not allow girls to sell cookies outside adult-oriented businesses.”

Pam Stevens, a Girl Scout mother volunteer with troop 3444, doesn’t agree with Danielle selling the cookies outside a marijuana dispensary, but she does applaud her ingenuity.

“They’re selling the cookies, not a place that’s illegal. If people are going there for a drug that’s prescribed, I don’t see anything wrong with it,” said Stevens. “I certainly believe it’s for a good cause, it’s for the Girl Scouts.”

“I think it’s probably a little creative,” said Stevens.

Others are posting comments online about Danielle calling her “genius” and “the smartest girl ever.”
