Girl Scout sells cookies outside Southeast Portland marijuana dispensary

This post has been updated

A Girl Scout selected a Southeast Portland marijuana dispensary as a cookie-selling location this weekend. 

KATU reported that a Girl Scout had set up shop in front of Foster Buds Medical and Recreational Marijuana Dispensary on Southeast Foster Road on Saturday. The girl was with her aunt, who said it wasn’t violating any rules, KATU reported. 

Girl Scout Cookies sales are in full swing across the metro-region. The girls sell the iconic cookies, which locally come in eight varieties, to raise money to support Girl Scout councils.  

A post on the Facebook page for the dispensary said Foster Buds was “proud” to have Girl Scouts selling outside the shop.   

Sarah Miller, a spokesperson for the Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington said an instance of a Girl Scout selling cookies near a dispensary is rare. Grocery stores are the most common cookie-selling spots.

Miller said the following about guidance to Girl Scouts and families on cookie sales: “Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington recommends that if a minor cannot enter a premises unaccompanied, she should not sell Girl Scout Cookies in front of the premises.”

Last year a Girl Scout in San Francisco tried the same tactic for the second year in a row, selling more than 200 boxes within hours, according to ABC news.
