Stupid Montana Laws

We all love Montana, that’s why we live here. However, it seems in the past, there was a need for some laws that we don’t find quite relevant anymore. Although, with some of these laws, I’m not sure why they ever would have been necessary, but what do I know? Read them and see what you think.

In Bozeman, all sexual activity between members of the opposite sex in the front yard of a home after sundown is banned — if they’re nude.

It is a felony for a wife to open her husband’s mail.

In Helena, no item may be thrown across a street.

In Helena, a woman can’t dance on a table in a saloon or bar unless she has on at least three pounds, two ounces of clothing on.

In Salisbury, pop bottles are not to be thrown on the ground. You can set them there, but not throw them.

It is a misdemeanor to show movies that depict acts of felonious crimes.

In Billings, it is illegal for employees of the city’s communications center to program their phones with speed dial.

It’s illegal to sacrifice an animal in the presence of a minor.

It’s illegal to use your lawn sprinkler to bother passersby.

When a prisoner is discharged from the penal system, the local authorities are supposed to give him a horse and a pistol.
