America’s Strangest Drinking Laws

For anyone under the impression that the majority of ridiculous laws about alcohol were abolished at the end of Prohibition, be prepared to have your mind blown. And no, we’re not talking about drinking and driving laws or laws regarding the sale of alcohol to a minor. Obviously we’re all for those. They’re plausible. They make sense. When we say “ridiculous drinking laws” we mean more along the lines of the fact that’s it illegal to give booze to a fish in Ohio or the law in Texas stating that you can’t take more than 3 sips of beer if you’re not sitting down. Has your jaw dropped to the floor yet? If so, have a seat and get comfortable because those are just two of many outrageous drinking laws we’ve found. If you’re planning a trip to a different state we recommend reading ahead so you don’t find yourself behind bars for shotgunning a beer whilst standing in Texas.

Of course, we couldn’t find any ridiculous drinking laws for the Golden State, just confirming our belief that California is the most badass state around. Though we still don’t recommend sharing any Lost Republic whiskey to Bullwinkle any time soon.
