Just outside of Dispensary 33, one of Chicago‘s recreational marijuana shops, a Girl Scouts troop set up their cookie stand in a genius way to sell boxes.
The group of girls, along with their parents, set up shop outside the store on Sunday, eventually selling around 230 boxes of Thin Mints and Samoas, the Chicago Tribune reports.
While this isn’t a new tactic — selling the famous cookies to pot buyers — it is especially significant for Illinois, given Jan. 1 marked the legalization of weed in the state, per the Marijuana Policy Project.
“It was a decent sale,” troop leader Melissa Soukup said.
This isn’t the first time a Girl Scout troop has had this unbe-leaf-able idea.
In 2018, a California girl scout teamed up with local dispensary Urbn Leaf to sell some cookies. According to 10News, the girl’s unnamed father said she sold more than 300 boxes in six hours.
