Laws are what makes the country run smoothly. The people are governed in order to have things run like a well-oiled machine. However, there are times when laws become somewhat ridiculous and just out of hand. Maybe they were after a quota of creating laws that they just found funny things to be banned? Or are there stories behind these ridiculous laws that the Congress simply found too serious, they had to make it illegal. Regardless of which, laws are laws that we must follow, otherwise we get fined or go to jail. Simply put, follow these laws when travelling so you’ll avoid the ear-biting phrase, “If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.”
1.) Vicks in Japan
In Japan, you can’t get over the counter sinus/allergy medications that contain pseudoephedrine. Vicks inhalers and Sudafed are banned because they fall under Japan’s strict anti-stimulant drug law.
2.) Oklahoma and Donkeys
After 7 PM, better get your sleeping donkey off your bath tub. It’s illegal to keep your snoozing little donkeys in a lava of bubbles after 7 PM. The story behind it, we’ll never really know.
