On Sunday, February 23, 2014 I read an article in the Seattle Times that I just had to share with you. It turns out that an enterprising young Girl Scout in San Francisco sold 117 boxes of cookies after locating herself outside of a medical marijuana dispensary. When other Girl Scouts and their moms heard about it they decided to follow suit and have been recording greatly improved cookie sales. One dispensary in Arizona has even used the cookies as a sales incentive; buy at least a half an ounce of pot and have your pick of a free box of Thin Mints or any other variety of cookie the Girl Scouts are offering.

I didn't stay in scouting long enough to earn merit badges but I loved the little icons and what they stood for. The imagery on the badges is constantly evolving along with the different skills that girls learn now. Could somebody please tell me what in the world this icon represents?
The badge is called On My Way
