10 Weirdest Laws in Florida


There is no easy way to put this- Florida is a weird place. The Sunshine State has a reputation of being home to the craziest people and stories. So, it shouldn’t be a big surprise to hear that Florida also enforces some of the most outlandish laws in America. Many of these laws date back to centuries ago, but are still in effect to this day. These mandates are going to make you scratch your head, but remember, they were implemented for a reason at one point in history.

Read through the following 10 weird laws in Florida and see if you’re a criminal.

1. It is illegal to have sexual relations with a porcupine.

Imagine having to tell inmates what you did if you were arrested for this:

“So man, what are you in the slammer for?”

“They caught me cheating on my wife with a porcupine”

2. A person may not sell his or her own children.

Don’t worry kids, you’re safe.

3. In Destin, it is illegal for the owner of a store to allow a person to pass out free ducklings in front of the store.

Who enforces this law? The fun police?

4. It is illegal for a couple to have sex in any position other than missionary.

Throw the handcuffs on. We’re all going to jail.

5. In Daytona, it is illegal to molest a trash can.

“So this one time on Spring Break….”



6. It is illegal to skateboard without a license.

Who knew you needed a license to shred?

7. Unmarried women are not allowed to parachute on Sundays.

Well, there goes my dream first date plans.

8. Pregnant pigs cannot be confined to cages.

This is important. #PigLivesMatter.

9. It is illegal to sell ice cream in a cemetery.

Ice cream sales must be dead!

10. It is illegal to sing in a public place while dressed in a bathing suit.

But Floridians wear bathing suits everywhere we go…..

Although these laws are not actively enforced, they are still in the books, and are punishable by jail time or even death in some cases. Florida is a strange state.
