Vermont has a law to prohibit other laws. See what it prevents people from doing


Laws are a good thing, they help to control society and provide the population and their government with boundaries to live by.

Unfortunately sometimes the makers of the laws get a little carried away, and history is littered with strange and obtuse laws that have been created over the years.

The northeastern American state of Vermont even has a law that forbids other laws being formed. In this particular case the law relates to a homeowners right to make use of energy saving devices, with the law stating that any other law written to prohibit a homeowner from "the use of solar collectors, clotheslines, or other energy devices based on renewable resources" is itself illegal.

Thus, anyone promulgating a law against the use of these devices would be breaking the law by doing so.

Where else, but in the good old US of A, could one break the law, by making a law?
