In Maryland, you can’t swear in public.

“Swear words” are a part of many people’s everyday vocabulary. However, in Rockville, Maryland, it’s illegal to curse, swear, or use “obscene language” near any street, highway, or sidewalk where people passing by could hear you.

The punishment for this misdemeanor charge is around $100.
