A Girl Scout in San Francisco sold 117 boxes of cookies in two hours by setting up shop outside a medical marijuana clinic. In addition to selling cookies, she also earned a "genius" merit badge.
Lexi Menees, 8, sells Girl Scout Cookies while sitting outside Trumed Dispensary, which sells medical marijuana for licensed patients, in Phoenix on Friday, Feb. 21, 2014. Girl Scouts seem to be foregoing the usual supermarket stops for selling their beloved cookies. A few days after a teenager sold dozens of cookie boxes outside a San Francisco pot dispensary, Menees, 8, will return to Trumed Dispensary in Phoenix on Saturday for the same purpose. The girl's mother, Heidi Carney, got the idea after hearing about what happened in San Francisco. Susan de Queljoe, a spokeswoman for the Girl Scouts, Arizona Cactus-Pine Council, says this is not something the organization would encourage but that it's up to the parents.
