Stories of Atlanta

Chance or skill?

It is illegal in Mobile, Alabama to spray Silly String. In West Virginia, if you’ve ever fought a duel with a deadly weapon, you can forget about running for office, that would be illegal…as would entering a mine in Wyoming should you be intoxicated. And, if you’re under the age of 18 in the State of Washington, you need your Mom’s permission to throw a tear gas canister. There are all kinds of laws about subjects that might surprise you, including one passed in Atlanta in 1939 that took aim at a popular form of recreation. It’s a story about naughty pleasures on this week’s Stories of Atlanta.
