Harmless or a big no no?

On a fb garage sale site there are several people selling home made foods like tamales and pies. Several people chimed in and told them it was illegal and that they shouldn't be selling those items without a food permit. Most shrugged it off saying it wasn't a big deal and the whole buyer beware thing.

Today a lady is selling vodka with fruit in it. More people are concerned because the laws for selling alcohol are a lot stricter than for food.

So would you say something or turn her in or shrug your shoulders and move on?

Dude, Idk! If I thought (with some evidence; not just pure BS I made up in my head) there was the slightest chance she'd sell to minors I'd do something about it. Otherwise, the LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS can and will ENFORCE LAWS! People used to give each other homemade foods all the time and they were appreciated! Vendors (yes, normal people who cooked their own foods and rented a booth; these people just aren't renting a booth) sold homemade, delicious, ethnic foods at street festivals or fairs. The people so worried about codes & laws don't have to buy anything. Voila! Their asses are covered if something legal does happen, though it's unlikely.

Omg, people really care enough to turn them in?

I commented and told her to be careful because if she sold to a minor she would be in trouble and she said she's checking ID

No I would not care at all. Why would anyone? I don't know that I'd buy home made food from someone I don't know but that's me. People need to geta life.

Shrug my shoulders. It's not that serious.

 I'd wonder for a moment why the administrators of the site didn't do something about it.

Then, I wouldn't care.

Think of all the people who decorate cakes and stuff from their home.  How about school bake sales.  It's not a big deal.  I do think the woman selling vodka is an idiot and the people buying from her are even bigger idiots.
