A 9-year-old Girl Scout in California discovered a strategic spot to sell cookies - in front of the Urbn Leaf marijuana dispensary in San Diego, The San Diego-Union Tribune reported.

A genius Girl Scout sat outside of Urban Leaf for six hours and sold more than 300 boxes of the good shit. Buying Girl Scout cookies, which have an impressive fan base, is a time-honored way to donate to a great organization and get a little something sweet in the process.

If a rule is broken again, the girl could lose the awards she earned by selling a certain number of boxes of cookies, but Doyle said that is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Officials were trying to identify the girl and talk to her family because she was in a commercial area, which is not allowed, council spokeswoman Mary Doyle said in an email Monday. The shop, Urbn Leaf, even advertised the cookie sale, informing its customer base on Instagram that the Girl Scout would be there.

A video of the girl making sales, posted by 10News' Travis Rice, appears to show the girl standing - her face blurred - with a wagon on a parking lot median in view of the dispensary's door.

Urbn Leaf's founder, Will Senn, said he would be happy to speak to the Girl Scouts council to clear up misunderstandings, and hopes his business can support local fundraising in the future.

"We can't respond to that at the moment", she said.

Alison Bushan with Girl Scouts San Diego said they saw the social media post back at headquarters and had to consult the book.

When asked whether the organization was investigating the incident or whether it would discipline the Girl Scout, Doyle said they do not know the girl's identity or the details of the incident.

"Get some Girl Scout Cookies with your GSC today until 4 p.m.!"

Bushan said since the scout set up on a wagon and was off the property, the scout was operating within the organization's rules. "When we learn that a girl is in violation of a standard/guideline, we nearly always discover that the parent was unaware of the rules".
