    It's called a deterrent. People are far more likely to take necessary health precautions when they have established that they are legally allowed to do something. This is why you don't find rat tails in your meat.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    for the record I think taking this to lemonade stands is a bit much.



    OTOH isn't a lemonade stand used as a teaching tool to teach kiddos commerce and business?

    In a perfect world, we would have no need for rules and regulations.
    Do we have a perfect world ?

    NOT EVEN CLOSE !
    But . children must be trusted, must be allowed to mature...with some innocence.
    They should NOT be subject to man's rules and regulations as far as their lemonade stand goes., IMO.... Children must be allowed to be children....with some limitations, of course..
    If the state has nothing better to do than harass the child trying to operate a lemonade stand, its then obvious to me than the state must do away with the harrasser....fire him !...or transfer him to a place where he can do some good..
    "Good" is the key word...

    all we need is one time, some crazy ****ing pyscho to lace his kid's lemonade from the lemonade stand....with arsenic or anti-freeze.

    and this whole debate will be over.

    There are men out there with no "common sense", and they would over-enforce any law, no matter who is hurt..
    As I say, its a very imperfect world...
    Maybe as, a ideal little town or village, the children could obtain a permit for say 5 cents for their stand, and learn out government and business, I think that would be great.....if only a dream....Or, with their parents help, simply call "city hall" for permission and that "city hall" would respectfully relate that no permit is necessary....
    The child should learn things every day...but when really young, they should NOT have to know all the nuiances....this is where the parents come into the picture...

    That's all we need at a food truck, McDonald's, Burger King, wherever. Yours is the mindset that makes a 6-year-old's lemonade stand illegal.

    there are requirements, safety requirements, and inspections..and classes..to get a food vender license.

    which means that in a perfect world, kids can't sell lemonade on the sidewalk.

    but unfortunately, it wil take a tragic act of sadistic murder, to stimulate such a law.
