Well that's just stupid.  Talk about a natural market.
 
2014-02-24 07:51:41 PM  
And here I was wondering when the inevitable turf wars would start.

I can kinda understand the strip clubs and maybe the gun shows, but really?

I can understand the strip clubs, but not the gun shows.

FTFA:

But the Girl Scouts of Colorado leadership is killing the buzz for local members, saying that Colorado scouts cannot likewise sell cookies in front of pot shops,

Solution:

A lot of pot shops tend to be in strip malls (at least they are here in WA), so just set up your stand a short distance down the sidewalk.

The Girl Scouts of Colorado have the opportunity here to become a world economic power. They could supplant Russia in the G8.
 
2014-02-24 08:46:08 PM  
This is stupid - it's legally no different than a cigarette, and I know Girl Scouts are allowed outside of supermarkets and gas stations, which sell cigarettes (and booze, and nudie magazines).

Seriously, don't set up in front of the store, set up in front of the store next door.

Besides, when people leave said dispensary, chances are, they're going to leave down the sidewalk, so they'd actually miss the girls right in front of them.

God Is My Co-Pirate: Well that's just stupid.  Talk about a natural market.


Yup.

Do they want to sell cookies or not? This kind of thinking seems to me to be the kind of opportunity they should WANT the girls recognizing.

The store I work at sells all of that stuff (minus the nudie magazines, I think ... never thought to look for those) and when the cookie sales start the kids are inside the front lobby (20 yards away from the liquor store). Nobody's ever complained.

*shrug*

/wouldn't one think drunks would be worse for kids to be around than potheads?
 
2014-02-24 09:19:14 PM  
too bad they can't sell Doritos

WHY DO GIRLSCOUTS HATE MONEY
 
2014-02-24 09:21:21 PM  
Spoil sports. Next thing you know they will put a weight limit on those who can buy cookies..

Seriously.  I think a ton of the folks I see at gun shows would buy a box or two.  And they'd be cheap, compared to the food for sale inside the show...

Wait until the banks give the dispensaries commercial accounts. Frito-Lay will buy display and merchandise racks for them.
 
2014-02-24 09:27:47 PM  
Well so much for one stop shopping.
 
2014-02-24 09:29:09 PM  
I can imagine a good pitch for a GS in front of a gun show: "Please mister, buy some cookies so I can buy my first AR-15!"

Put a table up right out a bar on a sidewalk. Get a couple of fathers to stand guard to make sure nothing goes wrong and sell cookies to drunks. You would have to burn the piles of money to keep warm on your camping trip.
 
2014-02-24 09:40:19 PM  
Damn. Those are all the good spots for begging, charity collecting and selling school or Scout crap.

Guilt is the best sales person there is.

Somebody in Colorado must hate the Girl Scouts.

I bet you it's Cartman.

At the state level, maybe, but it's still illegal on the federal level. The fact that federal cannabis prohibition laws can be unfavorably compared to the stables at Pamplona and Belmont notwithstanding, the Girl Scouts are making the right choice by trying not to associate themselves with criminal activity.

/and, as someone else pointed out above, they can just set up their tables in front of the dispensaries' next-door neighbors

The people coming out of those places went there to get whatever fix they were after. Now that they've returned home with what they went out there for the girl scouts come knocking; on the houses of the people now drunk, horny, armed, destitute, and high.

Can you legally operate a vehicle high, or smoke pot outside? I haven't read into the laws, but I thought that while it could be purchased for recreational use, DUI and public consumption still apply to pot

If they really wanted to keep them away from immoral behavior, they should be banned from selling in front of banks, courthouses, law firms, and the statehouse.

DUI for sure. Public consumption... I dunno. I see people smoke outside all the time but they usually give you that shady, "don't hassle me bro" look and hold their bowl or J down low.

Fair point, I do believe it is more like alcohol than cigarettes. But ignoring the pot for a minute, why is a grocery store okay but not the liquor store?

So, um, how many cookies did you shove up her ass to get that?
 
2014-02-24 10:15:13 PM  
Generally speaking, people under 21 are not allowed inside a liquor store without a parent/legal guardian. grocery stores do not have this restriction because the majority of their sales do not come from adult substances.

It is the same reason children aren't allowed in bars, but can go to a restaurant that serves alcohol.
 
2014-02-24 10:18:59 PM  
Seriously, though, since a traditional organization like the Girl Scouts aren't uptight about it, why the hell is the Colorado State Government?

Seems like a two steps forward, one step back mentality.

The first one is a much more vivid picture....B^D
 
2014-02-24 10:24:46 PM  
That entire list is kind of silly, honestly:

liquor stores -- the one place where pretty much no one is drunk, because the ones coming in don't have liquor yet and the ones going out aren't allowed to start drinking 'till they're gone

bars -- I can see at night, but people at bars during the hours that cookies are sold aren't getting plastered, they're on their lunch break.  That's actually a pretty standard time for the cookie sellers to get you, is right before lunch.

strip clubs -- All right, I'll give them this one, mainly because they tend to be located out in the middle of nowhere or in really violent parts of town.

gun shows -- Another place people really aren't allowed to be intoxicated, and where there are a lot of people looking out to keep people from being rowdy.  The only reason I'd see not to be allowed to sell there is if the other food vendors take issue with people selling food without a license.

 casinos -- yeah, because a place with in excess of fifty bouncers, at least two of which have line of sight to any part of the area at any given time, is totally an unsafe place for a teenager to be standing and doing something involving small change by the local standards.

pot dispensaries -- Actually, this makes the most sense out of any of the list.  The girl scouts are a national-scale organization, and dispensaries are, from the perspective of the national-level government, a crime.  You don't want to affiliate yourself even indirectly with criminals enforced by the primary level of government that oversees you.

Gig103: Fair point, I do believe it is more like alcohol than cigarettes. But ignoring the pot for a minute, why is a grocery store okay but not the liquor store?


It has the individual-health concerns of alcohol (intoxication, basically don't light up and operate heavy machinery, i.e. cars for most people) and the immediate public-health concerns of cigarettes (it's smoked, so it can affect people nearby other than you and smells kinda nasty).

That... is actually how the laws have pretty much been working out in states that have legalized and under federal de-prioritization.  If you're smoking in a room full of non-smokers (of pot, in this case) like a douche, they'll arrest you.  If you're doing something stupid or dangerous in your car like going 20 mph in the left lane of the highway and they pull you over and you smell like a DEA bonfire, they'll arrest you.  Otherwise you're generally left alone.

// You can tell this is reasonable because, frankly, it's not really much different from how most cops acted  before legalization/decriminalization started happening.  As petty as they can seem sometimes if you piss them off, most cops do have some level of pride in their job's importance to society and will try to focus on things that are actually useful.

It is treated very much like alcohol; DUI, open container, and public consumption definitely applies.  You can only use indoors on property you own.

Most places that have food vendors who pay for the privilege to set up shop simply can't/won't allow any competition. It's usually in the contracts.
