Is the Lemonade Stand of Yore No More?

As summer rolls around, so do memories of sluggish afternoons spent sweating curbside, hawking paper cups of lemonade to adults speeding by in cars. My cousins and I would gather, plastic folding table in hand, to set up shop and while away the hours. Sometimes we’d walk away with a few bucks and that was cool, too.

Well, call me old (don’t), but it seems things have changed! And not in the best way. In recent years there’s been a spate of police interventions in lemonade stands. Yep: Law enforcement has been busting children for selling lemonade on the street without a permit.
