In preparation of my move to Georgia, I started researching Georgia law. Here is a list of the things I’ve learned thanks to LexisNexis:
O.C.G.A. § 3-3-33 tells me that there are devices that will vaporize alcohol for you. Oh, and they’re prohibited. Alcohol hookah is bad y’all.
O.C.G.A. § 3-3-41 says no love in the club.
O.C.G.A. § 4-5-3 states that it is not cool to abandon your dead animals.
O.C.G.A. § 4-12-5 outlines regulations for llama activity sponsors, which means there are llama events in Georgia, and that excites me.
O.C.G.A. § 10-1-6: Mary Kay ladies beware! This law grants me 3 days to cancel if you come to my house and push me into a huge order.
O.C.G.A. § 16-5-25: “Fighting words” may actually justify a simple assault.
O.C.G.A. § 12-5-288: It is not cool to live on a boat for more than 90 days per calendar year.
O.C.G.A. § 26-2-249: Milk, butter, ice-cream, and other dairy products may not be handled in an unsanitary manner. So, there may be some truth to the ice-cream and back-pocket rumor.
In preparation of this article, I did a google search for “stupid Georgia laws.” I was unable to find actual laws for many of the results, which means they are likely not actual law, though they may have been at one time. I conducted my search by using the LexisNexis search bar. Some of these include:
• The floor of a porn store must be smooth and absorbent.
• It is illegal for a chicken to cross a road.
• It is illegal to use profanity in presence of a corpse.
• Donkeys may not be kept in bathtubs.
• It is illegal to tie a giraffe to a telephone pole or streetlamp.
• It is illegal to change the clothes on a storefront mannequin unless the shades are down.
• It is illegal to have a picnic in a graveyard.
