Rest easy, Colorado, the great lemonade blockade is over. Yes, as the Denver Post reports, Gov. Jared Polis signed a bill last week that will allow young ‘uns who want to make a few bucks with a good old fashioned lemonade stand to do so without government interference. The measure bars local governments from requiring entrepreneurs under 18 from having to get a city business license for small and “occasional” businesses like a lemonade stand. The bill was born out of the frustration of three Denver brothers, ages 7, 5 and 3, who had their stand closed down by the city last Memorial Day. Denver officials had already changed the ordinance within city limits, but state lawmakers saw a good opportunity to pile on in the name of free trade and they took it.
