Girl Scouts in Colorado have begun incorporating marijuana into their cookies

TinMintWeedGirl Scouts in Colorado have begun incorporating marijuana into their cookies in an effort to boost sales.

According to a report in the Rocky Mountain News, Sara Little of Boulder has sold more than $50,000 of marijuana-infused Thin Mint cookies in the last seven days and is on track to do more than $700,000 in sales this season.

“It wasn’t all me,” she tells the paper. “My parents helped out with buying the weed and helping with all the proper paperwork to ensure we weren’t breaking any Colorado laws. I ran the business side though.

“I realized that with marijuana I could create a self-sustaining source of demand. Coca-Cola adds salt to their product to make people thirstier. Why not add cannabis to make people hungrier?

“We established a legal business partnership with a local dispensary. They purchase the cookies at a healthy markup and they’re flying off the shelves. This is just capitalism. What’s wrong with capitalism?”

Highest Honor

Girl Scouts in several states have recently attracted media attention for selling their cookies outside marijuana dispensaries.  Although those girls were simply hoping to cash in on the drug’s ability to boost appetites, Ms. Little  decided to take things a step further.

“These cookies, naturally, are terrible,” she explained. “They taste like cardboard and sand. There is a cult following but I wanted to expand our market to people who enjoy good cookies.
