Blame it on the summer heat. Three Georgia youngsters have found themselves on the wrong side of the law. These seemingly sweet girls have been busted by the cops for selling illegal lemonade. The girls claim they were just trying to raise money to go to a water park. The police were not amused. Rules are rules.
By a city ordinance, the girls must have a business license, peddler’s permit, and food permit to set up shop, even on residential property. The permits cost $50 a day and a total of $180 per year. City officials said it’s their job to keep everyone safe and healthy, and there can be no exceptions to the rules.
“We were not aware of how the lemonade was made, who made the lemonade, of what the lemonade was made with, so we acted accordingly by city ordinance,” Chief Morningstar said.
