Greenhouse of Walled Lake owner Jerry Millen buys 301 boxes of Girl Scout cookies from Jennifer Slayden, 39, of Oakland County on Mar. 5, 2021, after Slayden, a mother of two Girl Scouts, was disappointed about her daughter’s lack of opportunity to sell more Girl Scout Cookies after the Girl Scouts of the USA are forbidding the Oakland County Girls Scouts to sell their cookies in front of the Marijuana dispensary Greenhouse of Walled Lake after they had gangbuster sales last weekend.

A Walled Lake marijuana dispensary seemed like an ideal place to sell Girl Scout cookies after some local troops set up shop outside the facility and sold 1000 boxes last weekend.
At least that was the case until the Girl Scouts of the United States of America got wind and frowned upon the idea — setting off a storm on social media and leaving scout leaders scrambling to smooth over the hubbub, calling it a “misunderstanding.”
After arranging to go back this Friday and Saturday, local Girl Scout members and families were told not to sell cookies in a “facility where they’re not allowed to shop,”
