Weird LawsIf you were to google "weird laws in Florida" you would be shocked at all the strange laws out there. It's often difficult to tell which of these laws are true and which are not. Although most of these state laws may have been true at one point in history, I doubt they are still implemented today. For example, according to one Florida law, adultery is illegal, as is cohabitation by unwed couples.  Even though this law is far outdated today, it's probably easier for legislators to keep it on the books rather than to go through the trouble of removing it.  Plus, if they removed it from the books, then we wouldn't have any strange laws to read about and discuss.  These strange laws also give us some perspective into people's morals as well as the way things were run back in the day.

Florida: A law in Florida apparently forbids cops to keep more than a pint of booze as evidence after they break into a still.  Shall we do the math? One pint is sixteen ounces, and eight ounces makes one cup.  So, one pint makes about 2 cups.  This means that cops that bust a still can only walk away with two cups of alcohol as evidence. What are your thoughts about this law?
