Girl Scouts in Michigan were forced by troop leaders to stop selling cookies outside of a marijuana dispensary, outraging the store’s owner who accused officials at the youth organization of crushing the girls’ entrepreneurial spirit.
Last weekend, members of the Oakland County Girl Scouts set up shop to sell cookies outside of the Green House of Walled Lake Cannabis store, in the Metro Detroit area, after being given permission by the dispensary’s owner, Jerry Millen.
The move proved to be a raging success, with the group selling more than 1,000 boxes over just a six-hour period.
Hoping to profit off the enterprising scheme, several more Girl Scout troops asked Millen if they too could sell cookies outside of Greenhouse, which he approved.
