American legal oddities

Lawyers around the world consider the United States of America the focus of ridiculous laws. Most of them are of origin many decades ago, when lawmakers were forced to make the appropriate amendments to protect respectable citizens from all sorts of legal loopholes. Nevertheless, there are several dozens of organizations that are fighting for the abolition of dumb laws ("stupid laws"), as they are called here.

The leaders in such "stupid laws" remain California and Indiana.
