If you're trying to set up a Lemonade Stand, don't bother trying to get the permits! It's a waste of time.... The debate is answered here: http://www.lemonade-stand.co.uk/blog/do-i-need-a-permit-to-start-a-lemonade-stand/

 

Want to open a business in America? It isn't easy.

In Midway, Ga., a 14-year-old girl and her 10-year-old sister sold lemonade from their front yard. Two police officers bought some. But the next day, different officers ordered them to close their stand.

Their father went to city hall to try to find out why. The clerk laughed and said she didn't know. Eventually, Police Chief Kelly Morningstar explained, "We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade and of what the lemonade was made with."

Give me a break....
