What's cooler than a Girl Scout selling cookies?
A business-savvy Girl Scout who sets up shop outside a cannabis clinic to rev up her sales skills.
Thirteen-year-old Girl Scout Danielle Lei did brisk business last Monday selling Dulce de Leches and other flavors outside The Green Cross medical marijuana clinic in San Francisco.
Danielle was able to sell 117 boxes within two hours outside the cannabis clinic -- 37 more than what she sold within the same time frame at a local Safeway the next day.
"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," said Holli Bert, a spokesperson for The Green Cross. "But it wasn't just patients, staff members and neighbors also bought the cookies. I personally bought five boxes. It turned out to be a big success."
Bert said that Danielle's mother had contacted The Green Cross to set up the sale outside the store.
"We were happy to have her (Danielle) come -- she is extremely business savvy," Bert said.
