Pay attention to the Arizona/cactus law. They do take their cacti very seriously and you can be prosecuted for harming the cactus.

I can remember a post on another site a couple years back that had these "laws" on it and I got a kick out of it. Most really make me laugh! Wonder who came up with some of those?

You gotta wonder about the back story on these silly laws.
I mean, everyone of them garnered attention at some point along the way. Enough so that they bothered to make a law.
