There’s good news for Colorado residents prone to munchies: as of Friday, you only need to make one stop to get both Girl Scout Cookies and weed. Girl Scouts of Colorado updated its cookie sales policy to allow Girl Scouts to sell their boxes outside of cannabis dispensaries. This is a change of heart for the organization, which previously banned setting up cookie booths in front of dispensaries. In a deleted tweet from 2014, its Colorado council stated, “If you are wondering, we don’t allow our Girl Scouts to sell cookies in front of marijuana shops or liquor stores/bars.”
… Under the new policy, Colorado’s Girl Scouts will be allowed to set up cookie booths in front of previously-banned “adult-oriented” places, like dispensaries, bars, and tattoo parlors. In an email, a Girl Scouts of Colorado spokesperson said that it’s up to parents and guardians to discern whether or not a business is appropriate for cookie sales.
