    Seems like it is more a question of establishing guidelines than anything else. The Ex reports that “Lind (cupcakes) admitted they never obtained a permit to sell their cupcakes in the Castro, but that was only because the permitting process was too onerous.” If there’s no issue with health and safety, the brick and mortar folks are probably upset they didn’t think of it first.
