Most of America's laws make sense, and it's clear that they were enacted to protect people. However, there are a handful of California state laws that are either severely outdated or make absolutely no sense, but they're still technically legally binding! The saddest thing about these laws are that they were made for a reason. This means that people have actually committed these BEFORE the law was put into effect. They are good for a laugh though.
