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.
