The United States is a large country with many laws. With so many different laws among so many different states, there are bound to be a few interesting laws. Here are 5 odd laws from different states around the US.
No Spitting in Public
Arizona seems to have taken public decency to the next level, as it is illegal to spit in public in Goodyear, Arizona. In fact, spitting outside of the city hall can lead to a hefty fine of up to $2,500, six months in prison, or even both!
No Fake Butter
Iowa takes butter seriously, as evident through its law prohibiting the marketing of imitation butter as real butter. A law in Iowa states that imitation butter of any sort must be sold strictly under the name of "oleomargarine", and cannot include the words butter, creamery, or dairy, and also cannot include depictions of dairy cattle.
No Eating Frogs That Died in Frog-Jumping Contests
While it is completely legal to own live frogs solely for frog-jumping contests in California, it is illegal to eat them if they die or are killed - in fact, the frog must be "destroyed as soon as possible" after it has died.
Don't Sell Dyed Baby Chicks
This Kentucky law states that dyed chicks, ducklings, and rabbits cannot be sold - that is, unless they are older than two months of age and are sold in quantities of six or more.
Now, this law seems completely reasonable. What makes it weird is that out of all 50 US states, Idaho is the only state to technically have a law against the act of cannibalism. The act of cannibalism can result in a sentence of 14 years in prison.
There it is, five (out of many, many more) laws from different states around the US.
