Utah outlaws gunpowder as a headache cure
I've heard of some strange laws that are still on the books across this land so I did some digging to see what odd laws are on the books in Utah. You may enjoy knowing it is illegal to cause a catastrophe. While you'd expect explosions, fire or poison gases to be forbidden, causing an avalanche is against the law too. Think about that when you decide to ski out of bounds into the backcountry.
It's good to know your kids are safe since it is illegal to hurl a missile at a bus. Both whales and elephants are protected in Utah so take them off of your hunting list. If you are riding a bike or moped, you must keep at least one hand on the handlebars at all times. A lot of you have been breaking the law.
You are not allowed to modify the weather. Cloud seeding is actually a thing now but Utah has had it on the books for a long time that you can't tamper with the weather. You probably know the DABC does not allow you to bring any hooch into our state. While it is rarely enforced, throwing snowballs is against the law in Utah.
Beer is OK but having it in a container larger that 2 liters will get you in trouble. But now we get to some of my favorites. The ones you always think someone made up but they are actually on the books. Pharmacists are not allowed to sell gunpowder to cure headaches. It's against the law to carry a violin in a paper bag. Daylight must be visible between partners on the dance floor. Women may not swear. Looks like my wife is going to prison. It is illegal to have sex in a moving ambulance. If you are caught, the guy is set free but the woman is punished and her name will be in the newspaper.
And here's one you will swear I made up but while it never became law, it was proposed by a legislator that if a TV weather person gets the forecast wrong, they must provide an ice cream cone for each member of the House of Representatives.
I forgot to mention auctions may not be advertised by hiring trombone players to play on the streets. And I wish you people would stop ignoring that law and give us all a break from the trombone music every time you're having an auction.
