Country Time to cover fines incurred by neighborhood lemonade stands
DENVER - Every year, we report on some unfortunate, entrepreneurial kids who set up a neighborhood lemonade stand only to be shut down by bureaucracy, by local governments requiring a permit.
It all became too much for lemon drink maker Country Time Lemonade after someone in Denver called police over Memorial Day weekend on two boys running a lemonade stand to raise money for charity.
The Denver Channel reports cops shut the stand down because the pair didn't have the necessary permit.
Now, Country Time Lemonade has stepped up with a new program, Country Time Legal-Ade, to cover fines or permits for anyone who has had a local lemonade stand shut down by "the man."
Life doesn't always give you lemons, but when it does, you should be able to make and share lemonade with the neighborhood without legal implications. That's why we're here to take a stand for lemonade stands across the nation. The offices of Legal-Ade are now open!
So, if your lemonade stand has incurred a fine during the 2017 or 2018 calendar year OR if you've purchased a permit for 2018 so your miniature entrepreneur can sell lemonade, turn to the good folks at Legal-Ade. We'll cover your fine or permit fees up to $300.
