Louisiana’s New State Laws
Put away that laser pointer! Stay out of that tanning bed! Your Country and Western Chicken can no longer wear spurs. And mind your temper around referees. A bunch of new state laws take effect tomorrow (August 1st, 2014.)
.You can no longer aim laser pointers at planes or drones flying over chemical plants. Minors can no longer use tanning beds. If you punch a referee at your kids ballgame you will face mandatory jail time. It is now against the law to sell spurs and knives used for cock fights. The Mayhaw tree has also been named the "Official State Fruit Tree." WWL points out that 551 new state laws take effect on August 1st.
