I’m a little behind on my TYT episodes, so this story is a little old, but I had to share it because I love it.
If you can’t watch the video right now, here’s the gist
I’m sure you are aware of the Girl Scouts, and that one of the most famous tasks of the Girl Scouts is to sell excellent cookies to raise money for their troop, and that the scout that raises the most gets a prize. So, one enterprising young girl decided to place her cookie stand outside of a marijuana dispensary.
She sold over 300 boxes of cookies in under 6 hours. She’s a genius. She’s my hero.
Apparently, this story also sparked outrage, because despite pot being legalized in many states, there is still this prudish attitude towards pot acceptance into society.
To that, I say pfft. Selling cookies outside of a dispensary is just smart, it does not make her more likely to smoke pot. If the Girl Scouts were famous for selling brie instead of cookies, and one girl decided to sell it outside a winery, this would not have been mentioned at all. It just shows me that the States still has a long way to go when it comes to marijuana, regardless of the strides taken in legalization. Ironically, I think that pot is more socially acceptable in countries where it is still technically illegal, like Germany or Italy, than it is in the States.
Anyway, give that girl a badge for her efforts. Hell, give her two. She deserves to be praised, not maligned, for her savvy.
