Big Government. Small Brains. Dumb Laws

Here's a few dumb laws that remain on the books still to this day. I will start out with Maryland not for the obvious reason but because we are close to Easter and one of the dumb laws for Maryland is pertaining to the Easter Holiday.

City Laws in Maryland

""""It is a violation of city code to sell chicks or ducklings to a minor within 1 week of the Easter holiday."
