It seems that every state has some crazy laws.  Whether they are severely outdated laws that have remained subtly in effect or just plain ridiculousness, Colorado has its fair share of crazy laws.  Test your knowledge to see how many of these crazy laws you were already aware of.  If you are looking for a laugh and further educating yourself on your state’s laws, this list is for you.
