One smart cookie
The name "Girl Scout Cookies" means a lot to a Bay Area marijuana consumer.

The legendary cookies have lent their name to one of the area's most popular marijuana strains; and actual Girl Scout cookies are, well, delicious. They also go very well with medical cannabis, as one real-life scout has discovered.

On Monday, a wise and enterprising Girl Scout set up shop outside of cannabis dispensary The Green Cross's location on Mission Street in the Excelsior.

Within 45 minutes, her stock of Thin Mints and Samoas sold out, and she quickly learned that medical cannabis users are generous people as well as hungry people, with a sweet toothaccording to reports.

This genius move -- pure mastery of the adage "location, location, location" -- is one 13-year-old Danielle Lei has pulled before, according to the East Bay Express.

With the blessing of her mother, Carol, Danielle has sold cookies in front of medical marijuana dispensaries in San Francisco for the past few years, she told the newspaper, including the Vapor Room in the Lower Haight before the federal Justice Department shut it down for, as you may recall, being too close to a park that had children, and SPARC on Mission Street.

You may also recall that before it opened, the Green Cross was protested by a one-time political candidate, who tried to push the message that a cannabis dispensary brings crime to a neighborhood.

Apparently not. Carol Lei, who's lived in Glen Park since 1987, pointed out that there are security cameras and a security guard on site. "I feel like it's safe," she told the EBX.

For Lei, this is a business as well as a learning opportunity. Her kids learn that cannabis patients are "not drugged out," she told the newspaper, and are actually legitimately ill people who need to use marijuana as medicine.

"Many have serious needs," she told the newspaper, "and are just a little different."

Hmm. You reading this, Justice Department?

And in case you missed it, they'll be back: from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, another Girl Scout contingent will set up outside the same friendly neighborhood pot club to sell her cookies.

"Well played girl scouts," one Facebook user posted on The Green Cross's page. "Well played."

(For the record, the Green Cross does not currently have any flower "Cookies" in stock, according to their menu.)

So far. The pedestrains were in traffic, in the road not the sidewalk, because they have a law that you must stop , ppl think that means, that all cars and drivers can see them, so they don't even look both ways before the crossing the street, only a small portion were driver error, why are you not mad at girls standing around selling cookies where they shouldn't be according to you

Girl Scout cookies are more addicting than drugs

San Francisco drivers love to run over pedestrians. The fact that these girls have been put in additional harms way because of the controlled substance being sold inside is sick.
