Weirdest U.S. Laws

The United States has been a country for nearly 250 years with a lot of changes being made to our constitution and the law books. At Kamper-Estrada we are no stranger to interesting laws dictating by states. We’ve compiled a list of the weirdest U.S. laws. Here they are compiled by state below.

Keep in mind most of these would not hold up in a court of law as they are archaic and have yet to be changed.


  • It is illegal to hunt camels in Arizona
  • It is illegal for donkeys to sleep in bathtubs
  • It is illegal to manufacture imitation cocaine.
  • When being attacked by a criminal or burglar, you may only defend yourself with the same weapon that your attacker possesses.
  • In Tombstone, it is illegal for men and women over the age of 18 to have less than one missing tooth visible when smiling.


  • It is illegal to let a dog pursue a bear or a bobcat at anytime.
  • Sunshine is a legal guarantee in California.
  • Women may not drive in a house coat. Here is a house coat for reference.
  • No vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour.
  • Animals are banned from mating within 1,500 feet of a school. How could you monitor that?

New York

  • The penalty for jumping off a build is death. Seems a bit redundant, huh?
  • A person may not walk around on Sundays with an ice cream cone in his or her pocket.
  • Slippers may not be worn after 10 pm
  • You can be fined $25 for flirting.
  • Adultery is still a crime in New York


  • Florida has, accidentally, banned all computers and smartphones from internet cafes.
  • It is illegal for unmarried couples to live together and commit “lewd acts”
  • It is illegal to sell your children. Shouldn’t this one be obvious.
  • Oral sex is illegal in Florida.
  • If an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the owner is responsible for paying any parking fees incurred.

Seems like there are a lot of laws to cover in the U.S! Don’t worry because Kamper-Estrada has your back in navigating these waters.
