Lawmakers in Colorado, the state that was famously among the first to legalize marijuana for recreational use, are set to discuss a bill that would open a path for another substance to be legally sold by entrepreneurs – specifically lemonade from kids’ neighborhood stands, according to 9News.
Senate Bill 103, “Legalizing Minors’ Businesses” has been sponsored by Senators Angela Williams and Jack Tate and Representatives. James Coleman and Terri Carver, and would allow kids to run a small business without having to fear The Man rolling up to shut them down.
The bill is being introduced in the wake of public outcry over police shutting down a lemonade stand three boys set up last summer near a Denver arts festival.
