I am a tarot card reader and I am traveling on the road. Is there anyone who can tell me places I can and can not do my readings? States and their laws that would be great.

RE: Much needed info by john on Apr 1, 2020
I see at least 2 options...in no particular order.

The first would be to call each city hall/police and ask if a permit is required.
The second: It's better to beg forgiveness rather than seek permission.

The second is what I used and only got kicked out of a few places...
