CHICAGO (WSIL) -- Rather than going door-to-door in hopes of selling a few boxes of cookies, one group of Chicago Girl Scouts went straight to their potential customers.
The troop set up shop outside Dispensary 33 in Chicago last weekend and reportedly sold hundreds of boxes of cookies.
“The cookies they’re selling and our clientele, it’s a great match,” Abigail Watkins, marketing and outreach manager for the dispensary told Block Club Chicago. “As a former Girl Scout, I admire the hustle.”
Recreational marijuana became legal in Illinois January 1.
Currently, regulators have approved licenses for 48 adult use cannabis dispensaries in Illinois.
In the meantime, companies are rushing to complete renovations at dispensaries, expand growing facilities and hire employees.
