A nine-year-old Alberta girl managed to rapidly sell out of Girl Guide cookies by targeting cannabis consumers on the first day of legal sales.
Elina Childs tells CTV News Channel that it was her father’s idea to load up her wagon and line up outside of an Edmonton pot shop on Wednesday.
Elina, part of the Girl Guides Canada Brownies program, unloaded all 30 boxes of cookies at $5 each in about 45 minutes, according to her father, Seann Childs.
Childs says he came up with the idea a day or so before legalization.
“We were going to sell them in the neighbourhood and it’s always been a little slow,” he said. “Elina was actually bit by a dog once.”
“She did a fantastic job and was very polite and everyone was very polite with her,” he added.
Childs added that he used the experience to teach his daughter about legalization.
“We talked about … what it was and what it means for people who want to use it and people who don’t want to use it,” he explained.
