Weird, Lesser Known Laws in Wyoming
Wyoming, just like every other state, has it's own set of laws. Most of these laws are widely acknowledged and accepted. If you dig deep into the Wyoming law book, you will find some obscure laws you probably didn't know existed. You may have broken the law and didn't even know it. This list should get you back on track to being a law abiding citizen.
For an idea to become a law, it has to overcome an extensive process. Many proposed laws fail during this process and a small amount actually get drafted into laws. It really amazes me that some of these obscure laws made it it all the way to becoming a law. I can't be sure how old or how long some of these laws have been in place. But despite their age, some of these laws make some sense and others are just down right odd. Take a look at the list and see if you have broken any of these curious laws.
