SAN FRANCISCO — A 13-year-old Girl Scout in San Francisco is turning into an online sensation because of what many call a savvy business idea.

According to Mashable, Danielle Lei sold her cookies right outside of a medical marijuana dispensary.

In two hours on President’s Day, Danielle sold 117 boxes in two hours. The Girl Scouts of Northern California Association said they have no problem with Danielle selling cookies outside the dispensary.

According to The Green Cross Facebook page, she needed to call in for back-up cookies after 45 minutes because she was so busy. The company said there will be more cookies for sale this weekend.

    This young girl really had a great plan of attack for getting customers to purchase her cookies and increase her sales. She knew her customers would be hungry and took advantage of the opportunity.

    Here’s a story FOX 13….Why can this girl set up her own personal cookie booth, but us Girl Scouts in Utah cannot? That is so unfair! I got to set up my own booth when I was a kid, but when I started doing it with my daughter I got into a lot of trouble. Utah Girl Scouts are only allowed to sell door to door in February. So they have to approach potentially dangerous homes in the worst air quality under the most frigid weather. I have complained and complained to the Utah head quarters and they do not care! They say this is the safest method. I can tell you it is the most inefficient and dangerous.
