Default dumb state laws

Lets see if anyone can come up with the dumb laws in their respective states... this is an interesting way to really see just how dumb some of our law makers were and in some cases still are..

Here is for Idaho...

Idaho
• Boise: Residents may not fish from a giraffe's back.
• Coeur d' Alene: If a police officer approaches a vehicle and suspects that the occupants are engaging in sex, he must either honk, or flash his lights and wait for three minutes before approaching the car.
• Idaho Falls, Idaho: If you're 88 years of age or older, it's illegal for you to ride your motorcycle.
• Idaho state law makes it illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy weighing less than fifty pounds.
• If a police officer approaches a vehicle and suspects that the occupants are engaging in sex, he must either honk, or flash his lights and wait for three minutes before approaching the car.
• Idaho and other states allow members of the Native American church to use the hallucinogenic plant peyote in religious services.
• Illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy weighing less than fifty pounds.
• In Idaho walking along the street with a red-tipped cane is strictly prohibited.
• In Idaho, a citizen is forbidden by law to give another citizen a box of candy that weighs more than 50 pounds.
• In Pocatello, Idaho, a law passed in 1912 provided that "The carrying of concealed weapons is forbidden, unless same are exhibited to public view."
• It's illegal to hunt from the back of an anima.

Any suspicious officer who thinks that sex is taking place must drive up from behind, honk his horn three times and wait approximately two minutes before getting out of his car to investigate.
• Non-married couples in Idaho who engage in sexual intercourse can be jailed for up to six months
• Pocatello: A law passed in 1912 provided that "The carrying of concealed weapons is forbidden, unless some are exhibited to public view"; A person may not be seen in public without a smile on their face.

Apparently they repeat themselves quite a bit in Idaho as well.

Here are some for Nevada:

· A man is forbidden from buying drinks for more than three people other than himself at any one period during the day.

· Clark County: An ordinance makes bringing a concealable fire arm into the county illegal unless it is registered with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. In order to register a handgun, however, it must be brought in to the police station. Furthermore, you may not register a gun on the weekends, but the police may prosecute you at that time.

· Elko: Everyone walking the streets is required to wear a mask.

· In Eureka, Nevada men who have mustaches are forbidden from kissing women.

· In Las Vegas, Nevada: It's against the law to pawn your dentures.

· In Las Vegas you can bet on any team--except The University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

· In Nevada sex without a condom is considered illegal.

· In Nevada until the 1960s it was illegal to sell liquor at religious camp meetings, within a half-mile of the state prison, in the State Capitol Building or to imbeciles.

· In Reno, Nevada staging a marathon dance is illegal, although posting a notice on a fire hydrant about illegal dance marathons is not.

· In the old days in Nevada a man caught beating his wife was tied to a stake for eight hours a day with a sign that read, "Wife Beater" fastened to his chest.

· It's illegal in Nevada to have a "house of ill fame" within 400 yards of a church or school.

· It is illegal to drive a camel on the highway.

· It is illegal in Reno, Nevada to conceal a spray-painted shopping cart in your basement.

· It's still "legal" to hang someone for shooting your dog on your property.

· Saloonkeepers had to post the names of habitual drunkards if so requested by the local sheriff or members of the imbibers' immediate families.

Native Americans have been using peyote in religious ceremonies for centuries. This is a completely reasonable law.

agreed ...but it is a dumb law because a white dude wrote it and they were scared of the power that was alledged to have been given them...

Also, I cannot find it because I think it was repealed some years back , but here there was alw that said it was illegal to conduct any business relations with the indians here...

Arrow Loads Of Useless Laws

Every state & federal government has tons of useless laws.

In Texas it is illegal to carry wire cutters in your pocket.

Many of these laws made some sense when they were enacted but not today. Laws are created by politicians & lawyers so we can feel safe. It's all nitpicking to the extreme.

Good laws are general guidelines, not specific & constraining. Just look at what's going on today. Laws that congress passes are very specific and fill a 400 page binder.

The Constititution was never meant to be specific but a general guidline on how to live. The Constitution guarantees us the right to bear arms but look at the limitations imposed on us today. The government is scared of its' peoples right now and very controlling. THEY know they have done wrong to us and are doing everything THEY can to keep us from righting the wrongs.

So look for many more useless laws in the future.

Here's one that actually has a good reason behind it
In Missouri it is against the law to paint a horse.
Back when, if you knew someone with a dappled horse, you could paint spots on yours get a good price at auction. The mark finds out when the horse sweats and the paint runs.
In Boone county, dogs are exempt from the boone county dog ordinance, but bunny rabbits are not. Must have 1/2 acre if in a subdivision of more than five lots for each head of livestock including bunny rabbits and chickens. Dogs are exempt.
