Not too many know this but Arizona SUX for small business.

Out of all 50 states, Arizona has the most, the most expensive and the most difficult to obtain licensure environments in this nation. Bilking small business is a major revenue generator in a state that's basically losing jobs. Real estate was the primary driver here for decades, really since the 1970s so this was all just milking out of state investment coming in. Well now that tap is at a trickle and still...they wring every fat dollar, nickle, dime and penny out of you.

Know what it takes in licensure and compliance to get a HOT DOG CART working here? About $1500 and that's before insurance. A HOT DOG CART. And every agency has inspectors roaming around at all hours just looking for violations to bring in more bucks.

Yeah sorry to say Arizona looks a lot better in the brochures in so many ways. Get caught with pot? With any amount including chemical residue? INSTANT FELONY. Leave your stash in CO boys and gals.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
