A girl learns marijuana and Girl Scout cookies are a match made in heaven

One industry is thriving following the legalization of recreational pot across Canada.

I'm talking about Girl Scout cookie sales!

When I heard about this little girl, I knew I had to file a story about it for Fox News Headlines 24/7 on SiriusXM 115.

She's 9-years-old. And lives in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. And she came up with a great idea to sell her Girl Scout cookies.

Setting up shop outside a marijuana dispensary!

Elina Childs pulled her wagon filled with the munchies along the crowd lining up outside Nova Cannabis. Selling out in a matter of minutes.

By the way, marijuana sales, which began Thursday, are ''high'' as well in Canada. Some dispensaries are already running out of weed.

Man's Facebook apology for robbing pizza delivery driver lands him in jail

He apparently had some remorse for what he'd done and wanted to apologize to his victim. But it was that apology that put him behind bars.

Police in Reading, Pennsylvania say Jerel Guzman sent a friend request to the driver. Because he wanted to say he was sorry for robbing her at gunpoint.

She knew it was legit because she'd ID'd the robber from his profile pic.

So instead of becoming his BFF -- she showed it to a detective. And the cops simply went out and arrested him.

And as you all know, I just love reporting stories about criminals who do themselves in like this on Fox News Headlines 24/7 on SiriusXM 115.

Did you hear the one about the pig's head in the luggage?

Those contraband sniffing dogs you see at airports are trained to find things like drugs and bombs in luggage. But a roasted pig?

A Customs K-9 found just that at the Atlanta airport. Prompting me to report about it on Fox News Headlines 24/7 on SiriusXM 115.

The dog -- named Hardy -- got a hit and alerted the handler. Something suspicious was inside a suitcase.

So Customs and Border Protection agents took a look inside.

Not an explosive.

Not drugs.

Nope. A roasted pig head!

Probably one of the most unusual contraband finds ever.

A funny story but a serious issue. It's illegal to import pork (this one was coming in from Ecuador) into the United States to prevent the introduction of disease like foot and mouth and swine fever.

This pig loves Doritos and the cops say that's a very good thing

Talk about some real life bargaining chips.

Deputies in San Bernardino County California say it's fortunate an escaped pig had the munchies. Because they used Doritos to get the porker home.

Video of the incident appeared on social media - showing the animal - which is the size of a mini-horse - hamming it up for the camera.

One of the deputies got the bright idea of grabbing a bag of Doritos from her lunch bag. 

That got Porky's attention. They used the snack to lure him. We we we, all the way home.

And who says I only report negative news on Fox News Headlines 24/7 on SiriusXM 115?

Man run over by a lawnmower while trying to kill his son with a chain saw

Douglas Ferguson

Sullivan County, Tennessee sheriff's deputies say 76-year-old Douglas Ferguson was mowing the yard with his son. An argument broke out. Something long-standing between them.

They say Ferguson grabbed a chain saw and went after his son.

What happened next is the reason why I reported this story on Fox News Headlines 24/7 on SiriusXM 115.

Deputies say his son then used the lawnmower to defend himself. Running over his father's leg.

Ferguson was rushed to the hospital where his leg was amputated.

An attempted murder warrant waited for him until he got well enough to be arrested.

She wants to be a judge but cops say first she has to face a judge for drunk driving

Cops giving Julie McDonald a field sobriety test before they arrested her

Sober as a judge is what the saying is.

But this woman was stopped at 10:45 in the morning while driving in Royal Oak, Michigan. And given a field sobriety test. Which, police say, she failed.

Julie McDonald arrested for drunk driving and taken to jail.

Kind of embarrassing for someone running for judge don't you think? But that doesn't mean her candidacy is doomed.

That's because McDonald is running unopposed for a seat on the Oakland County Michigan  Circuit Court bench.

I didn't ask this question when I filed this story for Fox News Headlines 24/7 on SiriusXM 115. But. If she is elected. Does that mean she'll have to recuse herself in cases that involve people who were drunk behind the wheel?
