One Girl Scout is capitalizing on customers with the munchies.

A Girl Scout reportedly set up a table in front of a pot dispensary in Portland, which cut a deal with the girl, according to AOL.

The Foster Buds dispensary reportedly allowed the scout to sell her cookies, while also offering a Girl Scout Cookie strain to (legally-aged) customers, the publication added.

The girl was supervised while selling the cookies, and the Girl Scouts of the USA reportedly isn’t too happy. According to the girl’s aunt in an interview with AOL, “they don’t condone this, but it’s not against the rules.”

Notably, this entrepreneurial Girl Scout isn’t the first one to capitalize on legal pot dispensaries in the U.S. to make some cash for charity. In fact, The Huffington Post reported in 2014 that another scout was selling in front of a San Francisco dispensary.

Earlier in February, Fortune reported that legal marijuana sales could reach $6.7 billion in 2016. In December, Fortune reported that Girl Scouts sold 2.5 million boxes of cookies online for $10 million total. But, overall, Girl Scout cookie sales fell to 194 million boxes, or $776 million in sales, in 2015.

Girl Scouts of the USA declined to comment.
