  1. #20 isn’t just talking about any cactus.. it’s the giant saguaro. first of all it’s an endangered species, so that makes it a federal offense. secondly it’s the arizona state flower and takes many decades to reach maturity.. this law sounds crazy, but it is for a good reason.

  2. The cousin law is 65 because of the chance of procreation. It’s the same in Arizona. Over the age of 65 a woman has zero chance of producing children so she’s allowed to marry her cousin. Interestingly enough, it is 100% legal to marry your first cousin in 18 US states and inb4 none of them are in the south. The south actually has the strictest laws against first cousin marriage.

  3. What are your sources for these laws? I have a hard time believing that the chicken one comes from a reliable source?

  4. Number 9 is completely incorrect. I personal live in Washington and that law is not enforced. I think you should recheck you source
