Freedom is beautiful! The free market is beautiful! And now both of those are starting to take shape in the great state of Colorado.
According to The Cannabist Girl Scouts in Colorado are now allowed to sell their cookies outside of marijuana dispensaries:
It’s a pairing as natural as milk and cookies, or beer and pretzels. The Girls Scouts of Colorado have decided it’s now cool to peddle their baked goods outside marijuana dispensaries.
Munchies, meet Thin Mints, Tagalongs and Samoas.
Girl Scouts of Colorado updated their policy for the 2018 cookie season to treat “adult-oriented” businesses such as marijuana dispensaries the same as any other business, council spokeswoman AnneMarie Harper told The Denver Post on Friday.
All proposals for sales at any site, including adult-oriented sites, must be approved by Girl Scouts of Colorado, Harper said.
This is a great way to teach children the lesson of basic economics and the free market. Take advantage of people that are willing to buy your product by setting up shop right in their territory.
There are safety precautions put in place to protect:
Safety factors considered include the location of the business and the distance Scouts will be positioned from parking lots and roadways, Harper said. The council also makes sure Scouts have the permission of both the business owner and the property owner.
The state’s Girl Scout Cookie Locator lists sales sites that have been approved by Girl Scouts of Colorado, Harper said. This weekend’s listings include bars, a tattoo parlor, coffee shops and a Lakewood marijuana dispensary.
Freedom is a beautiful thing!
