A simple and reasonable regulation to stop asinine and embarrassing cases like this: A minor child may sell any legal product as long as the he/she is doing so from private residential property with the permission of the owner. Any danger to the public due to an unawareness of what is in the product is covered by caveat emptor. This prevents it from being done in an industrial or commercial zone. This would unfairly interfere with businesses which are regulated. Furthermore if you are buying lemonaide from a young child on their property, you have no expectation of any sort of health inspections or of the contents of the drink. If a stand is set-up in a public place, a commercial site, or similar it would be more likely for some to assume that permits and inspections were done.
