Panel OKs workplace sales of Girl Scouts cookies

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia public employees have been given the OK to sell Girl Scout cookies in the workplace.

The state Ethics Commission on Thursday allowed the practice as long as employees don't use public resources to promote the sales and don't coerce co-workers to buy the cookies.

The Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/Rb8cxr) reports the request for an advisory opinion raised Girl Scout cookie sales and two other scenarios regarding solicitations. The others involved taking up collections for co-workers having financial problems and for selling commercial products in the workplace, such as cosmetics.

Commissioners ruled the other two scenarios also were allowed with certain limitations.
