The girl - wearing her green vest of badges - is clutching boxes of cookies outside the front doors of Urbn Leaf in the photo, which was widely shared on the internet.

A San Diego Girl Scout stood outside of a newly-legalized marijuana dispensary on Saturday, hawking her Girl Scout Cookie wares to the weed-wielding shoppers that came for the cannabis and left with a light lunch.

She strolled over to marijuana dispensary Urbn Leaf, according to local news station Fox 11, and sold over 300 boxes in six hours.

Girl Scouts San Diego said that while booth sales do not start for another week, scouts are allowed to sell from wagons as long as they have a parent or guardian present.

Will Senn, the founder of the dispensary, told AP that the girl was with her parents and passing by with her wagon when the picture was snapped.

At the beginning of the sale GSSJC announced its goal to donate 120,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to members of the military and first responders who supported relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey. Some objected to a child photographed outside a dispensary. "As Girl Scouts, we assume good intent".

100 percent of the net revenue from cookie sales stays the local Girl Scout council and troop. Should we became aware that a girl has repeated an infraction, there could be consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis. Buzz-killing GSA spokeswoman Mary Doyle said they are trying to identify the girl and talk to her family.

If you haven't given up on your New Year's resolution then here is another thing to tempt you with - Girl Scout cookies.

Senn has worked to de-stigmatize the industry.

Since the use of recreational marijuana became legal in California on January 1, Senn said it is rapidly becoming accepted.
