Crazy, but true laws

Compiled by: Julie Giyer

In New Mexico … “idiots” are banned from voting.
Idiots include, “Insane persons convicted of a felonious or infamous crime.” To our knowledge, this crazy law isn’t enforced elsewhere.

In Iowa … you cannot throw a brick onto a highway.
This Corn State law seems to be written in stone. Highway brick throwing is banned unless you have written permission from the City Council. It’s suspected that it all started with snowballs, but officials thought to include stones and bricks.
