SAN FRANCISCO (CNN)— Within 45 minutes of setting up outside a medical marijuana dispensary in San Francisco, California, a 13-year-old Girl Scout had to call for “back-up cookies ”— and she had so much success selling Thin Mints and Tagalongs on Monday that she’ll be back again this weekend.

Holli Bert, community liaison for The Green Cross dispensary, told HLN Friday that the teen’s mom, Carol Lei, contacted the business with the idea.

“We love to be able to support the community, and we love the Girl Scouts, so we thought why not?” Bert said.

HLN reached out to Lei several times but has yet to hear back. Many online commenters seem to be big fans of the cookie location.

“Best idea ever,” said one commenter on The Green Cross Facebook page.“What pothead wouldn’t love to get munchies after buying his trees?”

Another posted:“See a need, fill the need… rule of capitalism.”

Lei, who spoke with CNN content partner Mashable, said she and her daughter sold 117 boxes in two hours outside the clinic on Monday, which was President’s Day. That’s 37 boxes more than they were able to sell the following day during a two-hour period outside of a grocery store, according to Lei.

Brilliant move. The munchies are inevitable. Timing is everything.

Sounds like she is a good salesperson. She knew the right place to set up.

They haven't even come by my place. Them pot heads must have bought them out and now they are sitting on their azzes posting on topix. Some have all the luck!

Smart and opportunistic.
Of course they are going to sell MORE at the pot clinic than at the grocery store.....think about it.
After leaving a grocery store the LAST thing you need to do is buy more food (at an inflated cost)......but when leaving a pot clinic it would be the FIRST thing you need (i.e. food).

She could be selling saltine crackers and she would sell-out just the same.
