Cannabis and cookies is turning out to be a winning recipe for some enterprising Girl Scouts.

Lexi Carney, 8, set up shop outside the TruMed medical marijuana dispensary in Phoenix Saturday, where a day earlier she sold 76 boxes of the popular cookies in just a couple of hours, Arizona’s 3TV reported.

The grassroots idea came less than a week after 13-year-old Danielle Lei became a viral hit for selling

Thin Mints and Do-si-dos outside the Green Cross pot shop in San Francisco. She sold out of product in 45 minutes on Monday, and she too returned Saturday, according to the dispensary’s Facebook page.

Lei’s mother, like Carney’s, accompanied her child, and told the East Bay Express she feels it’s perfectly safe.

“There’s always a security guard and cameras everywhere,” she said.

Neither of the girls’ scout troops commented officially on their business ventures, but in Colorado, where recreational marijuana is legal, the Girl Scouts posted a statement on their Facebook page condemning the practice of selling outside any “adult-oriented business.”
