Entrepreneuring Girl Scouts target marijuana dispensaries for cookie stands

The York Dispatch

Ally Marotti, Chicago Tribune Published 2:32 p.m. ET Feb. 11, 2020

CHICAGO — With boxes of Thin Mints and Samoas stacked above their heads, a group of Girl Scouts set up shop outside Dispensary 33 on Sunday, selling cookies to passersby and customers of the recreational marijuana store.

The girls – or their parents – weren’t the first to sell cookies to people buying weed. Girl Scouts in California have set up outside dispensaries and Colorado’s Girl Scouts recently lifted a ban on selling in front of marijuana shops.

But the timing of Girl Scout Cookie season worked in the young entrepreneurs’ favor this year in Chicago. Legal weed went on sale in Illinois Jan. 1, and long lines continue to form outside weed shops.

1. They did this last year and someone complained

so they just moved their table 10' and continued doing great business. Other girl scouts did the same when word got out.

4. Not an ounce of shame in a fair deal or a good cause.

The arc of the market bends toward quality. Folks waiting in line for Purple Kush x Haze want a Thin Mint, and a tiny "pay forward" buzz.
