A business-savvy Girl Scout is funding her trip to horse camp by setting up her cookie stand outside a marijuana dispensary in Portland, Oregon.
The girl and her aunt set up a sign reading, "Satisfy your munchies," outside the Foster Buds Marijuana Dispensary, which has welcomed the idea.
On Saturday, the store offered an eighth of an ounce of the newly christened "Farmer 12s Girl Scout Cookies" strain for anyone who brought boxes of cookies, the New York Daily News reported.
The Girl Scouts organization said it doesn't condone the unusual partnership, but it's not technically against the rules.
A representative from the Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington said they "recommend that if a minor cannot enter a premises unaccompanied, she should not sell Girl Scout Cookies in front of the premises," a local ABC News affiliate reported.
The girl reportedly surpassed her goal of selling 35 boxes of cookies to help pay for horse camp.
"It seems like people are happy we're here," she said.
Customers must be at least 21 to buy, possess or use legalized recreational marijuana in Oregon.
