Know the Rules: State Edition

Planning a vacation to Iowa? Going on a trip to Oregon? If so, make sure you know the rules before you are locked up in Montana for guiding sheep onto a railroad track!

One of the best things about a vacation is guiltless junk-food eating, but in Idaho, it’s illegal to give your sweetheart a box of chocolates weighing more than 50 pounds. Also if you are in Louisiana, you can be fined $500 for sending a pizza order to someone’s house without their prior knowledge. Think that’s not nutty enough? Then go to the beach! California has prohibited eating a frog that died in a frog jumping contest.

What else do you plan your relaxing getaway around? Family, business, or natural wildlife? Red Rock Canyon in the state of Nevada is breathtaking, but just for your information if you’re there it’s against the law to drive a camel on the highway. Speaking of animals, it’s forbidden to wrestle a bear in Oklahoma, or in Arizona let your donkey sleep in your bathtub. The harassing of Bigfoot, Sasquatch, or any other subspecies is a felony punishable by a fine and/or imprisonment in Washington.

Sleeping in late and wearing PJs all day is the definition of a well-spent day off. Just make sure if you are in New York, your slippers are off before 10pm. Shop all you want in Hawaii, but coins are not allowed to be placed in one’s ear.
