    • 2018 February 8, Daniel Victor, “A Girl Scout Sold 300 Boxes of Cookies Near a Marijuana Shop”, in New York Times[1]:
      The girl, who has not been publicly identified, sold more than 300 boxes in six hours, her father told ABC 10. Boxes now sell for as much as $5 in parts of the country, so she probably raised more than $1,500. Yes, there’s money in the munchies.
