Laws, you can’t live with them and we all sort of want to live without them! Certain laws are good and necessary to keep society running safely and smoothly, but some laws are just plain crazy!

Throughout the years laws have been put on the books in Maine that are so far out there and strange, that they make you shake your head. The laws may have pertained to that time period, but time has changed and those laws are still on the books! Are they enforced? Not so much.

How fun would it be as a police officer to actually summons people for doing these strange things? After all, they technically would be breaking the law!

You can familiarize yourself with the laws below…you know…so you don’t end up on the wrong side of the law!


1. Shotguns are required to be taken to church in the event of a Native American attack.
