Indiana has some dumb laws or...hold my law book ya have to hear this one

Do you know about outrageous or funny laws in your area?

My favorite one in California: in Chico, you mustn’t detonate any nuclear devices. You risk a $500 fine for doing so.

@bijouxbroussard Ha! Maybe they'd waive the fine if it's your first offence?!

In Texas , it is illegal to carry wire cutters in your pocket unless they are extending out of it at least 3 inches. A violation of that law would get you hung for cattle rustling back in the day. Today , if LE needed probable cause, they could use that violation to search you or your vehicle.

@TexChik For cattle? 🤔
TexChik · F
@Degbeme for anything . Once they see a criminal act , they have probable cause for a search .

Laws are like swords.
They rarely hurt the ones that handle them.

I've heard some random ones, most of which turned out to be more urban legend than real. My favorite is that crystal gazers (AKA fortune tellers) need a special state license to operate.

I think uk laws spread across the whole country. tho there are some medieval ones in some towns that are still a thing today, but they are very rare. 🤔

I once read it is illegal for a married women to parachute in Florida on a Sunday.
And it supposedly illegal to eat Mince Pies here at Christmas.

It's illegal to have drugs in your pocket and have not yet enjoyed them.

But it's legal to have enjoyed them and no longer have them in your pocket.

@LilPrincess In Florida you can be hauled off to a mental ward on trumped up charges if someone reports you and the cops will spirit you away.
LilPrincess · 41-45, F
@GeistInTheMachine that is just awful. Especially with all the spiteful people in today's world
