Let’s take a drive through California to find some Weird State Laws! Read to the end to see who’s weird law theory won for QOTN!

As it seems Arkansas has the same weird laws that Arizona does, except for the fact that it’s illegal to say “Arkansas” wrong, so we are going to break California up into two parts because boy, do they have a lot of weird laws!

  • Bowling on the sidewalk is illegal.
  • Detonating a nuclear devise within city limits results in a $500 fine.
