This clever young entrepreneur managed to sell out of cookies in less than 45 minutes thanks to an exciting new business opportunity in Canada.

Earlier this week, Canada became the second nation in the world to legalize recreational marijuana – and as dozens of people lined up outside of cannabis dispensaries to celebrate the historic day, 9-year-old Elina Childs took advantage of the occasion to sell her Girl Guide cookies.

Elina, who is a Girl Guide from Edmonton, Alberta, says that she has never had as much luck with trying to sell her cookies by going door-to-door, since people are not often home when she knocks. Additionally, she was once bitten by a homeowner’s dog.

When she was peddling her sweet treats to the customers of Nova Cannabis, however, she said that there were people of all ages, races, genders, and styles waiting in line – and all of them were equally as welcoming of the little entrepreneur.

In less than an hour, Elina was able to sell all 30 boxes of cookies, which garnered $120 for the Girl Guides.

“Everybody we met was incredibly friendly, it was a great atmosphere and there was not a single thing going on in that line that I saw that I would just say, ‘Oh, my god, I need to shield your eyes from this,’” Elina’s dad Seann told CBC.

“Everybody was respectful, everybody was happy, and she walked away from it as this incredibly positive experience as well as selling out all her Brownie cookies. She can go and be happy that she’d done that and help support the Guides too.”
