Craziest Laws in the Land
The town of Ellington, CT has voted 10-4 (that's right, only 14 of the town's 16,000 people voted) to ban smoking in public places. Read more from NBC Connecticut.
We thought it was time to go beyond Connecticut to find the nuttiest, wackiest laws on the books in America:
In Arkansas, no person shall drive a motor vehicle onto the premises of a drive-in restaurant and leave the premises without parking such motor vehicle, unless there is no unoccupied parking space available on the premises.
In Riverside California, Kissing on the lips, unless both parties wipe their lips with carbonized rose water, is against the local health ordinance.
In Illinois a state law requires that a man's female companion shall call him "master" while out on a date. The law does not apply to married couples.
In Baltimore, MD It is illegal to take a lion to the movies.
It is not legal for a tavern owner to serve beer unless a nice kettle of soup is also brewing.
In New York City Women may go topless in public, providing it is not being used as a business.
In Oklahoma It Is Illegal To Have A sleeping Donkey In Your Bathtub After 7pm
