Police in Overton, Texas put the smack down on some hoodlums. These rotten kids were breaking the law by selling lemonade by the side of the road...without a permit!

It's sad to see the youth of our nation getting led down the horrible path of entrepreneurship when we all know the right way is to work for big business.  Follow, don't lead!

The city waived the $150 permit fee then the girls learned they had to have their stand licensed by the county health department because, according to KLTV:

"Texas House Bill 970, or the Texas Baker’s Bill, prohibits the sale of food which requires time or temperature control to prevent spoilage. Since lemonade technically must be refrigerated to prevent the growth of bacteria, by law, the girls can not sell it without an inspection and permit.”

I hope those kids learned their lesson.
