PHOENIX (AP) -- Customers of some medical marijuana dispensaries are finding they don't have to go far if they have a case of the munchies.

Girl Scouts seem to be foregoing the usual supermarket stops for selling their beloved cookies.

A few days after a teenager sold dozens of cookie boxes outside a San Francisco pot dispensary, 8-year-old Lexi Menees will return to Trumed Dispensary in Phoenix on Saturday for the same purpose.

The girl's mother, Heidi Carney, got the idea after hearing about what happened in San Francisco.

The family says Lexi sold more than 50 boxes on Friday.

Susan de Queljoe, a spokeswoman for the Girl Scouts -- Arizona Cactus-Pine Council, says this is not something the organization would encourage but that it's up to the parents.
