Time Magazine Article About Regulating Psychics
Time Magazine on September 2nd had an article "In the Crystal Ball: More Regulation For Psychics". It states that in Warren, Mich. this month fortune tellers must be fingerprinted and pay a yearly fee of $150. plus a $10 background check just to read fortunes. The city says it's to weed out "unsavory characters". Here's a little trivia I didn't know: "1 in 7 Americans consulted a psychic or fortune teller in 2009". Wow! That's a lot of people!
In Annapolis, MD they issue what is called a Fortune-telling License. And in Salem, MA the town put a "cap" on the number of local fortune tellers are allowed to practice there trade there.
Very interesting article. Please read it. There's more to raise your eyebrows to.
