Maybe you already know that the Greenhouse of Walled Lake is Oakland County’s first fully licensed medical and recreational marijuana dispensary.
You need only go into the dispensary for a minute and you’ll see they’re experts in ensuring that customers and patients receive the utmost guidance when it comes to selecting the right products.
But surpassing that is owner Jerry Millen’s undying commitment to give back to the community. That’s why, for the third year in a row, the Girl Scouts and the Greenhouse are joining forces.
The Girls Scouts and the Greenhouse
It may not seem a likely duo, but the Girls Scouts and the Greenhouse are becoming as classic a combination as milk and, well… cookies.
Two years ago, an enterprising troop decided the Greenhouse would be the perfect place to peddle their delicious treats. When they approached Millen to ask what he thought, he couldn’t have agreed more. So he made it happen.
When the troop sold over 1,000 boxes, it inspired other troops to ask Millen for permission to do the same. And a new tradition began. The last two years have seen sales of thousands of cookies. This year, they feel confident that that tradition will continue as well.
Get Your Cookies and Your Cannabis!
If you swing by the Greenhouse between 2pm and 7pm on Fridays, or 10am and 3pm on Saturdays, you can pick up your Tagalogs, Thin Mints, Trefoils, or other preferred cookie outside the dispensary.
Cookies can be purchased all the way through mid-April. “I have daughters of my own, so I know the importance of this yearly event and how much people look forward to these cookies,” says Millen. “We’re so happy this has turned into a tradition at Greenhouse.”
The Importance of Tradition
Having the opportunity to sell their cookies in front of the Greenhouse has been a godsend for the Girl Scouts who also do so much to give back to the community with the funds they raise from their cookies sales.
And there’s a pretty good chance you’ll see Millen there graciously assisting the troops in setting up their cookie stands and maybe eating a few cookies too.
“We need others like Greenhouse of Walled Lake to allow us to sell our cookies in this fun and supportive atmosphere,” said one local Girl Scout troop leader last year.

We Raise a Glass (of Milk) for the Greenhouse
As cannabis marketing experts, we know it’s crucial that cannabis businesses give back to their communities.
The Greenhouse’s focus on this over the past four years has been beyond commendable. It’s what this industry is all about. And we applaud them.
