Business Savvy Girl Scout Sets up Shop Outside Marijuana Dispensary and Sells 117 Boxes of Cookies

Smart lady!

Meet 13-year-old girl scout Danielle Lei who’s getting our vote for one of the smartest teenagers on the planet.

Armed with boxes of cookies, the smart scout headed to The Green Cross, a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco where she set up shop outside and waited for potential buyers.

According to Mashable, Danielle managed to sell a whopping 117 boxes in her stint outside the building.


Her mom told Mashable that this actually isn’t the first marijuana dispensary that the young scout has sold outside of!

“You put it in terms that they may understand,” her mom, Carol, said. “I’m not condoning it, I’m not saying go out in the streets and take marijuana […] It also adds a little bit of cool factor. I can be a cool parent for a little bit.”

“It’s no secret that cannabis is a powerful appetite stimulant, so we knew this would be a very beneficial endeavor for the girls,” Holli Bert, a staff member told Mashable in an email.

“It’s all about location, and what better place to sell Girl Scout cookies than outside a medical cannabis collective?”
