Colorado has got plenty of stuff to enthrall one and all! Itâ€™s diverse culture, wonderful people, and their unique views; every aspect of Colorado has a tenor of its own. Similar, is the case with the laws that have been formulated by the state legislature over the years. Like the other states in the country (our last post on Dumb Laws was based on the laws in Arkansas), Colorado also has numerous absurd, plain stupid and absolutely dumb laws that will make you hold your head in surprise. Letâ€™s take a sneak peek!
1 – Donâ€™t You Mutilate Any Rock State-wide!
If you ever planned to dig some rocks around in a bid to extract some gold or look out for some ancient artefacts, well, youâ€™ll have to drop your idea in Colorado! If you happen to mutilate any rock in the state, you are in for some serious trouble, folks!
2 – It is illegal to Throw Missiles at Vehicles
Why is this law just in Colorado? It should be everywhere in the US and why did we need this to be an actual law? Why would you even throw a missile in the first place?
3 – No Bawdy Houses, Folks!
Keeping a house where unmarried persons can have sex is prohibited. You canâ€™t let such individuals have fun at your place. You need to kick them out right now!
4 – Get a Ticket for an Unlicensed Dog!
To own a dog over three months of age, one must obtain a license. So, if you want to own a pet, youâ€™ll have to go through some more excruciating paperwork and bureaucratic delays!
5 – No Peeing in Public Allowed!
Public urination and defecation is not allowed in Colorado. Colorado wants its city clean so if you are in a hurry to use the toilet, well, you need to find a proper place for it or else it sounds trouble!
6 – You CAN Insult a Police Officer!
If youâ€™ve been having a hard time at home dealing with your spouse, well, you can vent your frustration at a Police Officer. Seems as if the police officers love being challenged and the legislators found a way to pacify domestic violence.
7 – The City is Off Limits for Grazing!
It is illegal to permit oneâ€™s llama to graze on cityâ€™s property. Yeah! They donâ€™t want your animals to be fed this way. Go look for greener pastures somewhere else!
8 – Rolling Rocks on Public Property is a Jailable Offence
If you happen to have some grievances against the Government or are looking for some innovative ways to register your protests, beware of this one: you canâ€™t roll or throw rocks on public property unless you are a Government employee. Let the rocks lie where they are! Donâ€™t disturb them!
9 – No Indoors Furniture to be Placed Outdoors!
If it wasnâ€™t made for outdoor, it canâ€™t be placed outdoor!
10 – No Hens in the Backyard!
A moment of silence for all the chicken fans out there! Thereâ€™s a consolation prize though! You can have up to 3 turkeys or ducks if you are into these birds.
