Country Time wants to legalize lemonade stands nationwide

By  | 

LANSING, MI (WILX) -- Although it seems like lemonade stands have been around forever, they were just legalized in Colorado and Texas a few weeks ago.

The lemonade mix company "Country Time" wants to take that a step further and do the same thing nationwide.

Country Time said only 14 states allow un-permitted lemonade stands. It's a common way for kids to make money in the summer without a permit, they can be fined and shut down.

The company helps cover any fees they may get for not having a permit, but now they're also encouraging political activism.

It's website has been updated to show lemonade entrepreneurs exactly where they're allowed to legally sell. They're also encouraging kids and parents to reach out to state representatives, and even offering downloadable yard signs to rally for the cause.
