SOMEONE CALL SIR Alan, we’ve found him the ideal business partner.
13-year-old Girl Scout Danielle Lei chose to shift her fund-raising cookie quota by setting up shop in the most genius of places… opposite the Green Cross medical marijuana centre in San Francisco.
According to Mashable, the savvy Scout sold 117 cookie boxes in two hours, 37 more than she shifted outside a local supermarket the next day.
The Green Cross were happy to share their customers with the teen, posting on their Facebook that Lei had to call for backup cookies after selling out in just 45 minutes.
A true master of supply and demand, indeed.
Speaking to Mashable, a spokesperson for The Green Cross said:
It’s no secret that cannabis is an appetite stimulant, so it’s not shocking that a lot of our patients came and purchased cannabis, and then saw the cookies and purchased them.
Lei’s mother Carol called ahead to the centre, but told NBC Bay Area that her daughter wasn’t doing any interviews. She simply wanted to teach her about ‘different sales environments’ and that cannabis users aren’t just ”drugged out”, but many have “serious needs, and are just a little different”.
So she had her mam’s approval, but what about her fellow Scouts? According to Slate, Northern California’s troop leadership seemed appropriately chilled about the whole thing, with a spokesperson saying:
We’re not telling people where they can and can’t go if it’s a legitimate business.
Now, where can we get some of these mythical Thin Mints in Ireland?
