An enterprising Girl Scout who set up shop outside a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco sold 117 boxes of cookies in 2 hours.
The reason for the whopping cookie sales is simple: the THC in marijuana boosts Dopamine in the brain. The increase in Dopamine gives weed smokers the munchies for cookies and other sweets.
Some might see gorging on cookies as a harmless side effect of weed smoking. But a recent study shows that traffic accidents have increased 300% in cities where marijuana is legal.
It is a known fact that marijuana leads to decreased attention span and increased anxiety, psychosis, and depression in users.
It's that time of year again. Time when your local market entrances are flooded with Girl Scouts selling boxes of Samoas, Tagalongs and Thin Mints. But one 13-year-old Girl Scout in San Francisco and her mother made a rather business-savvy decision to sell cookies outside of a medical marijuana dispensary.
On Monday, Danielle Lei and her mother set up shop outside the Green Cross store with the cookies. With the store's blessing, Lei sold 117 boxes in two hours.
Holli Bert, a spokeswoman for the Green Cross, said that after just 45 minutes, Lei had to call for backup cookies to replenish her stock.
"You put it in terms that they may understand," Lei's mother, Carol, told Mashable. "I'm not condoning it, I'm not saying go out in the streets and take marijuana. It also adds a little bit of cool factor. I can be a cool parent for a little bit." Source
