EDMONTON, ALBERTA – She is being called one smart cookie.
As people lined up to buy marijuana on the first day of its legalization in Canada on Wednesday, a small entrepreneur stood ready to capitalize on what could be expected to be customers’ need for a sweet snack — marijuana is notorious for causing the “munchies,” a desire to nosh on something.
Nine-year-old Elina Childs brought a wagon full of Girl Guide cookies to offer the crowd outside a new cannabis shop in Edmonton, Alberta.
Her dad loaded up a wagon with three cases of cookies and they walked a few blocks to the nearby cannabis store. She started walking up and down the line hawking her wares.
She said Thursday that they sold out very quickly.
