Urbn Leaf Founder, Will Senn, Said The Girl Was With Her Parents And Was Just Passing By With Her Wagon.

The girl — wearing her green vest of badges — is clutching boxes of cookies outside the front doors of Urbn Leaf in the photo, which was widely shared on the internet. Urbn Leaf founder, Will Senn, said the girl was with her parents and was just passing by with her wagon. He said he likes to support local fundraising efforts. “Cannabis is now legal in California and a direct result of that is the munchies a lot of times,” he joked. The photo drew praise and criticism. Some objected to a child photographed outside a dispensary. Marijuana is medicinal and not like alcohol, Senn countered, adding that doctors have been known to prescribe it to treat epilepsy in children. About 14,000 girls participate in San Diego’s Girl Scout cookie program. “As Girl Scouts, we assume good intent,” Doyle said. “When we learn that a girl is in violation of a standard/guideline, we almost always discover that the parent was unaware of the rules.” If a rule is broken again, the girl could lose the awards she earned by selling a certain number of boxes of cookies, but Doyle said that is determined on a case-by-case basis. Urbn Leaf wants to talk to the council and clear up any misunderstandings, Senn said.
