50 Bizarre State Laws

Whether they are leftovers from a forgotten time, laws that only make sense in a very specific region, or just the creation of a politician who was drunk or insane, there are some really strange laws in the United States. Each state has its share of crazy laws, but we have chosen one from each of them. You will be amazed at what is illegal (and sometimes what is allowed) in your home state.

Want to dye a duck blue and sell it? You'll go to jail in one state unless you dye and sell six of them. Love to play Bingo but are a convicted felon? Hopefully you don't live in Pennsylvania! The crazy state laws on this list range from just plain silly to truly unfair. In one state, you can't get married if you have an STD!
