What? Because the little girl was selling her cookies in a commercial area?

I get hit up every year by Girl Scouts selling cookies at grocery stores, home improvement stores, at retail stores, and at work. WTF?

It's called "targeted marketing", GSA, and it works.

Now shut the hell up and leave the kid alone, to bask in her brilliance.

Seriously, people? Chill out a bit, it was funny.

That girl scout has a better business sense than most stable geniuses.

When my son was about 6, my niece was selling GS cookies.
I told him to pick some out.
About a month later, my brother called me to tell me that my cookies had arrived... he said "Wow... I can't believe you ordered 22 boxes of cookies"

I asked my son.. "Did you really order 22 boxes of Girl Scout cookies?"
He looked at me like a quizzical dog and said "Boxes?" /CSB

Right. She found a good location in front of a legal business to sell her legal products. She deserves recognition for good business sense, never sanction.

They have some requirements before setting up stands in parking lots or malls. Stands are run by troops, door to door is individual.

How old is this kid, and is it reasonable that she understands the relationship between cannabis and snacks?  Either this was an adult's idea to put her there, in which case you don't punish the kid, or she has knowledge about recreational drugs that is troubling, in which case it's time to call CPS.

She illegally sold products on property owned by someone else. And didn't pay the mandatory fees for permits that other businesses do.

She definitely has some pretty solid horse sense.

I know right, how awful.
She should have been in front of a liquor store like any good citizen. And we should also look into prosecuting her teachers for the drug awareness class that is taught around 5th-6th grade. Kids being educated is, indeed, troubling, we need to put a stop to it!

When the fark did I say anything about liquor?  Are you just running a macro?  And since when drug awareness cover the munchies?  Settle down.  Just because somebody suggests that small children don't need to have intimate knowledge of drugs doesn't mean they're trying to steal your precious from you.

First, different groups have different rules

Second, typically those selling outside stores are arranged by the group. Because there are potential legal issues of just going to a store and selling stuff the troop leaders will usually arrange it.

maybe you need to chill the fark out and smoke a dubie. The "munchies" is common cultural knowledge passed down through generations. Just like recess games in elementary school are passed down from upper grades to lower. There is no "recess games" class.

What does a box of cookies cost now, how much does the Girl Scouts get, how much does the actual kids get.

This is child exploitation.

Or she has been on the internet and seen beheadings, 9/11, and bukkake since she was 7. Nothing like the streisand effect to blow it up.

Exactly. Since when is this the rule. You can't go in any grocery store in my area during those weeks of cookie sales without seeing a table set up. Been that way since I can remember.

Agreed. This last week Girl Scouts have had a table set up at the Kenmore Square T stop in Boston. Tons of foot traffic, most of it college students. Massachusetts won't have recreational pot retail shops until July, but this is about as close as one can get.

This.   you can already get good Knock offs of girl scout cookies off the shelf at Wal-mart year round but even so up until now I have still supported local girl scout troops ,.

Seriously as others have said the correlation between stoners and the munchies has been well known for generations.

The organization said they would warn her and if this happens again they would consider getting her in trouble.

And as for the various comments, as I noted before a table set up at a store is almost certainly arranged by the organization and the store. Not some random girls showing up with a table and some cookies.

FTA: SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Girl Scout council is looking into whether a scout who was photographed selling cookies outside a marijuana dispensary broke any rules.

No evidence of selling anything.  Staged picture is of a girl holding boxes of cookies in front of a store.

"Urbn Leaf founder, Will Senn, said the girl was with her parents and was just passing by with her wagon. He said he likes to support local fundraising efforts."

If she was "passing by" did the owner stop her and ask her to park her butt in front of his store?

Regardless, Girl Scouts sell outside stores all the time around here and the organization needs to calm the hell down.  At $5 a box they should thank her for being smart enough to know her target audience.
