The Dumbest Laws in All 50 States 

MASSACHUSETTS: Whether you’re at Gillette Stadium or Fenway Park, you’ll never hear just half of the “Star-Spangled Banner.” Singing or playing only part of the national anthem or remixing it as dance music is punishable by a fine of not more than $100.

MICHIGAN: A statute on the books since 1931 makes adultery a felony — punishable by a maximum sentence of four years in prison and possibly a $5,000 fine.

MINNESOTA: Any contest in which participants try to capture a greased or oiled pig is illegal. The same laws also prohibits turkey scrambles.

MISSISSIPPI: Profanity in public could land a person in jail for up to 30 days. It’s illegal for anyone to use vulgar language in the presence of two or more people.

MISSOURI: If a bull or ram over the age of one year runs rampant for over three days, any person may castrate the animal without assuming liability for damage.

MONTANA: Driving animals onto a railroad track with intent to injure the train can cause a fine up to $50,000, a stay at the state prison not exceeding five years, and other damages.

NEBRASKA: No person who is afflicted with a sexually transmitted disease can marry.

NEVADA: Using an X-ray machine to determine a person’s shoe size could get you in trouble.

NEW HAMPSHIRE: It’s illegal to carry away or collect seaweed at night. Marine plants and algae are routinely used to make fertilizer and animal feed, which gives it value.

NEW JERSEY: A person wearing a bullet-proof vest while carrying out a grave criminal act can be charged separately for suiting up. The practical effect is more jail and fines.
