In South Carolina it is illegal to buy nylon stockings on Sunday. (At least that was true while I was stationed there in the 1970's.)

In Oregon it is illegal to pump your own gas. The majority of stations are mini-serve, with a few being full-service. (With the corresponding higher prices, of course.)

In my area where i used to live, there are many laws that are really dumb or can be considered as stupid. Government or law makers should take some measurable steps against those dumb laws. Some of the dumb laws are.


1. Dogs may not bark after 6pm.
2. No vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour.
3. It is unlawful to walk backwards after sunset.
4. It is considered an offense to shower naked.

You can also find some more dumb laws from here. http://www.elistmania.com/still/50_stupid_laws_from_50_states/

We have our share of dumb laws in Arizona (or maybe not so dumb).

Hunting camels is prohibited.

The US Army once experimented with camels in the Arizona desert, and eventually gave up. The remaining camels were set free, and are now protected.

Any misdemeanor committed while wearing a red mask is considered a felony.

There is a possible 25 years in prison for cutting down a cactus.

The Saguaro cactus, treasured by Arizonians, has been endangered by those who find pleasure in shooting or cutting down cacti. Thus, a law was passed to protect the cactus.

Donkeys cannot sleep in bathtubs

A class 2 misdemeanor occurs if one places a mark upon a flag which is “likely to provoke physical retaliation”. ARS 13-3703

It is illegal to manufacture imitation cocaine. ARS 13-3453

It is unlawful to refuse a person a glass of water.

Makes sense in Arizona, right?

You may not have more than two dildos in a house.
