Girl scouts set up cookie stand outside Chicago weed dispensary, make an absolute fortune
The start of 2020 marked the legalization of marijuana in Chicago, the 11th state to legalize recreational use of the drug. And so, it was only a matter of time before certain enterprises began capitalizing on known side-effects of cannabis use, namely the "munchies".
In fact, an ambitious group of Girl Scouts managed to sell hundreds of boxes of their signature cookies after cleverly setting up shop outside Dispensary 33, a Chicago cannabis dispensary, this past weekend, the New York Post reports.

A short clip of the stall was shared on Twitter by the official account of Dispensary 33, who wrote: "Reporting to you live at Dispensary 33. We have Girl Scout cookies!! And not just the cannabis kind. Support your local Girl Scouts with us. (We have very limited flower for all you stoners. First come first serve. Come through while supply lasts.)"
The group reportedly sold around 230 boxes of Thin Mints and Samoas, according to Chicago Tribune.
Customers were thrilled to be able to conveniently buy some cookies on their way out of the shop, a spokesperson for Dispensary 33 told NBC Chicago.
“The response was incredibly positive,” Abigail Watkins told the publication. “People were so excited, our customers loved it, our staff loved it.”
“People were having fun,” Watkins added. “Everyone loves Girl Scout cookies. They were undeniably cute.”
Recreational use of Marijuana by those who are 21 years old and older has been legal in Chicago since January 1, 2020.
Cannabis users can legally purchase up to 30 grams, or about one ounce, of marijuana plant material, edibles with no more than 500mg of THC, and five grams of cannabis concentrate products. And non-residents can only purchase half these amounts.
