Here Are The Strangest Laws From Every State In The Country

With the amount of laws that get thrown around on both state and federal levels every year, a few ridiculous ones are bound to slip through the cracks.

And by a few, I mean an uncomfortably large amount. What’s crazier is that outdated laws from the past tend to hang around for decades.

While law enforcement officers typically focus on laws that actually matter and affect the lives of civilians every day, it’s a little unsettling that this level of weirdness is allowed to gum up the works. Take a look at some of the most ridiculous laws that America has to offer. We should at least get a laugh out of them, right?
