    On the bright side, Florida recently passed a law exempting home businesses which prepare food at home for sale up to $15,000 per year from local ordinances.

    Sometimes Florida is a very cool place to live.

    A law had to be passed that exempted people from selling their own food? No, that doesn't make FL a cool place to live, it makes it a place where the various local ordinances were so out of control that the state had to step in and unscrew what the local soviets were screwing up in the first place.

    Well, we needed a venders permit, health permits, a permit to use the pits. A waiver for the burn ban. Our goal was to sell maybe 200-300 plates. The cost of the red tape and beauracracy to make this happen? Equivilant to 213 plates. What...the...fuck!


    We probably have laws on the books here about that kind of food sales, but luckily, the city of Detroit has better things for their cops to do. Church parking lot BBQ is awesome around here, and I don't think many bother to get permits. I don't see too many lemonade stands in the city, it's not really safe for little kids to do that here.

    Busting the mayors alone is a full-time job. :D

    It's tough for little kids to actually build an armored lemonade stand.

    For something like this, you can't stop at state level and cast a judgement. Even Arizona has it's crazyland, Luis Gijalva's district, (a.k.a. U of A), and these incidents seem to be referring to local ordinances.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
