It's Girl Scout cookie time again

Apparently Girl Scouts can only sell cookies outside a business if it has a permit, and a weed dispensary was not considered a Girl Scout approved site, the organisation's communications director Mary Doyle, told the newspaper.

Instead of handing her order sheets to her parents to take with them to work like many Girl Scouts often do, this San Diego entrepreneur-in-training packed her wagon with those addictive cookies and headed to the nearest dispensary.

Urbn Leaf, a marijuana dispensary in San Diego, posted a photo of a Girl Scout selling the organization's iconic cookies outside, prompting praise and questions about the sales. Her dad said she sold more than 300 boxes in about six hours outside the store over the weekend.

Urbn Leaf founder Will Senn said the girl was passing by with her parents and wagon of cookies and he wanted to help them fundraise.

"Cannabis is now legal in California and a direct result of that is the munchies a lot of times", he joked.

The girl would receive a warning when identified but could lose any awards she earned if the rule was broken again, Doyle said.

However, as the girl's entrepreneurship began to create a buzz, the not-for-profit Girl Scouts of America later told the San Diego Union-Tribune it would investigate whether her sales practices were in line with the rules. Should we became aware that a girl has repeated an infraction, there could be consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Senn has worked to de-stigmatize the industry.

If you haven't given up on your New Year's resolution then here is another thing to tempt you with - Girl Scout cookies.

Since the use of recreational marijuana became legal in California on January 1, Senn said it is rapidly becoming accepted.
