The Girl Scouts are supposed to, among other things, teach young women skills that will help them be successful later in life. So you’d think that when one enterprising young Scout decided to sell cookies outside of a pot dispensary …
A Girl Scout sold more than 300 boxes of cookies in 6 hours outside a San Diego marijuana dispensary https://t.co/0WhrxWbBYJ

… They’d be impressed with her business savvy.
And you’d be wrong:

More from CBS News:
The San Diego Girl Scout council is looking into whether a scout who was photographed selling cookies outside abroke any rules.
Officials were trying to identify the girl and talk to her family because she was in a commercial area, which is not allowed, council spokeswoman Mary Doyle said in an email Monday.
Urbn Leaf posted a photograph of the girl Friday outside the shop that sells medical and recreational marijuana and invited customers on its Instagram account to come get some Girl Scout cookies.
The dispensary’s founder didn’t seem to mind that she was in a “commercial area”:
Urbn Leaf founder, Will Senn, said the girl was with her parents and was just passing by with her wagon. He said he likes to support local fundraising efforts.
So, what’s the problem, exactly? It’s not as if the girl was selling pot or smoking it herself. She saw an opportunity and she seized it!
You make nearly $1 billion in revenue off of kids selling the cookies– maybe just keep your head down and try not to attract attention? https://t.co/mvSarxwG8U

Oh good Lord, she used marketing skills. They need to leave her alone.

The Girl Scout Council should be encouraging more of this.
Gotta’ love enterprising youngsters.
See a niche.
Fill that niche.
Get rich off the niche.
Or as someone I used to know would say, “There are riches in niches, bitches.”
(too bad the $$$ is going to the left-leaning Girl Scouts… ?) https://t.co/nMM1ytnFdA

The Girl Scouts benefit a lot more from cookie sales than this young woman will … why clip her wings just as she’s learning how to fly?
What nonsense. It’s a legal business there just like the grocery stores where I see Girl Scouts all the time. Give the kid a bonus merit badge for smart business strategy. https://t.co/ddaORp7xZF

This girl is going places. Or at least, she should be.
This girl was smart. Should not be punished
