50 US Laws That Don't Make Sense ...


It's amazing how many US laws don't make sense.

For instance, I thought it was weird that my marriage license application asked if we were β€œfirst cousins or closer”.

I mean, who would want to marry their first cousin?

Wouldn't remembering things like catching bats in the attic or gluing his lips to the wall β€œruin the mood”?

I'd say so.

Anyway, I thought it might be fun to see exactly how many dumb laws there were.

Not surprisingly, most of them were about sex-what can be done (vaginal sex only), who can do it (married people) and how (missionary position).2

I don't know why lawmakers felt the need to go out of their way to outlaw these things.

Then again, they've also made laws against taking a lion to the movies (Maryland) and trying to clone yourself (Arizona), so you never know.

To that end, here are some of the US laws I found that just don't make sense.

Since every state has its own brand of weird, I've gone through all 50.

I hope you don't mind.

1. Alabama

-Incestuous marriages are legal.

-It's illegal to drive while blindfolded.
