Genius Girl Scouts Set Up Shop Outside Weed Dispensary In Chicago

In case you live under a rock, weed is now legal here in Chicago. People are happy about it. I’m happy about it.

So, what goes great with weed you ask? How about cookies. Maybe a couple 6 boxes of thin mints? Shoving Samoas down your face until you can’t breath?

Here’s a story of hustle I respect. Dispensary 33 in the Uptown neighborhood was graced by the presence of some very smart Girl Scouts this week. With help from the dispensary, they set up their booth, display, and signs right outside the entrance.

“The response was incredibly positive,” said Abigail Watkins, the dispensary spokesperson. “People were so excited… our customers loved it, our staff loved it.”


“They said they did good sales,” regional Girl Scouts spokeswoman Britney Bouie said.

“It’s really great to see these very entrepreneurial girls getting out there in the community,” Bouie added.

Yes it is.
