TUSCON, Ariz. -- Just weeks ago, lemonade stands were legalized in Colorado and Texas...but Country Time wants to take that a step further and do it nationwide.

The lemonade mix company says only 14 states currently allow un-permitted lemonade stands, Arizona is currently not one of them.

Without a permit, these neighborhood kids can be fined and shut down.

The company helps cover any fees they may get fro not having a permit, but now they're also encouraging political activism.

It's websitehas been updated to show lemonade entrepreneurs exactly where they're legally allowed to sell.

They're also encouraging kids and parents to reach out to state representatives. They've even been offering downloadable yard signs to rally for the cause.
