Alberta Girl Guide sells out of cookies outside cannabis store

April FrancisOct 22, 2018

The girl quickly sold all 30 boxes of cookies she bought, raising more than $90 for the Girl Guides, a Canadian group similar to the Girl Scouts in the United States.

She started walking up and down the lineup.

"People aren't home. There's dogs and everything else", said her father, Seann Childs.

Elina sold out her stock in just 45 minutes, making a total of $120 (US $91).

Her father, Seann Childs, said they sold cookies going door to door in their neighbourhood a year ago, but people often weren't home or there would be big dogs in the yards. But Childs said he saw it as an opportunity for her to benefit from smoking for one day - and demystify cannabis legalization. Even cars were stopping on the street to buy her cookies.

"It was well received", said Seann Childs.

Others balked at the relatively high prices - ranging from $5.25 in Canadian dollars in Quebec to $18.99 in Saskatchewan per gram - compared to the black market that saw average prices plunge in the past year to $6.79 per gram.

Democrats' hope for blue wave faces a new obstacle
But during the last midterm elections in 2014, many Democrats stayed home and Republicans won key races across the state. He's lending support for Dean Heller , who's considered the most vulnerable GOP senator on the ballot this fall.

He asked Elina if she'd want to try the same thing, and said she was excited to give it a shot.

"We were looking at it as an opportunity to educate her on what marijuana is and the fact that it's legal in Canada now", Childs said.

"She didn't quite understand what the big deal was", Childs said.

Childs said his daughter has always had an adventurous entrepreneurial spirit.

"We were sold out in no time", he said.

As people lined up to buy cannabis at one of six Edmonton cannabis stores that opened Wednesday, a small entrepreneur stood ready to capitalize on what could be expected to be customers' future need for a sweet snack. "She can go and be happy that she'd done that and help support the Guides too".
