The story attracted national attention this week after Urbn Leaf on Saturday posted a photo on Instagram of the Girl Scout in front of the shop with a caption that read: "Get Some Girl Scout Cookies with your GSC today until 4pm!"

A genius Girl Scout sat outside of Urban Leaf for six hours and sold more than 300 boxes of the good shit. "Bring them with - shopping is more fun with friends anyways", the company wrote.

The girl's father wants his daughter and him to remain anonymous, but said she sold 312 boxes in two three hour trips on Wednesday and Friday.

"So if that's what they say they were doing... then they were right within the rules", said Alison Bushan, of Girl Scouts San Diego.

Bushan said Girl Scouts can only sell cookies on "walk-abouts" in neighborhoods.

For scouts to be allowed to sell in a commercial area, they must sell between 9 February and 11 March and have a permit from the business owner, the San Diego Tribune reported. "GSC" refers to a product flavored like Girl Scout Cookies.

The controversial move of Girl Scout cookie sales at dispensaries has come with changing times around the U.S.

"It's not a cut and dried situation when we don't know who the girl is and we don't know what the situation is", said Maryl Doyle, director of communications for Girl Scouts San Diego.

Cell phone video shows a nine year old selling Girl Scout cookies out of a wagon near a marijuana dispensary.

Girl Scouts across the USA began selling cookies last month and will continue to do so online and in neighborhoods until April. Once they're approved Bushan said this would have been a major no no if the girl had a table on the door.

Doyle, the Girl Scouts San Diego spokeswoman, told the Union Tribune that the organization would reach out directly to the girl's family if officials do learn her identity. Should we became aware that a girl has repeated an infraction, there could be consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.
