Girl Scout sets up shop outside medical marijuana facility; sales soar

San Francisco mother and daughter, Carol and Danielle Lei, have perfected their cookie-selling strategy.

Setting up shop outside of The Green Cross, a medical marijuana dispensary, Danielle's cookies and other treats are popular sellers. Receiving sales from young and old, the Lei's sold out in a mere 45 minutes but will be returning to the same site on February 22 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Carol explained that selling the cookies guides the girls to make their own business choices and decisions. It is an opportunity to teach the children business ethic and goal-setting.

Moreover, the experience has greatly improved her daughter's interpersonal skills. As Danielle is solely responsible for the selling, she has been interacting with individuals from all walks of life and has been less shy as a result. Another important valuable lesson to be taken is that stereotypes about individuals requiring medical marijuana are largely faulty. She wants to teach her daughter that these people have serious conditions that require the substance.

The proceeds are going towards the Girl Guides organization and Alzheimer's Disease.

If you're in the San Francisco area, be sure to stop by on Saturday to support the cause!
