Maryland Crazy Law

Thistles may not grow in one's yard. 
No person who is a "tramp" or "vagrant" shall loiter in any park at any time. They define tramp as a person who roves for begging purposes and a vagrant as an idle person who is able-bodied living without labor. It's a $50 fine. I guess the tramp would have to beg for the money to pay the fine. -Park Rule 6 

Looking for more dumb laws? Check out! 
It's illegal to take a lion to the movies. 

It's illegal to throw bales of hay from a second-story window within the city limits. 

It is a violation of city code to sell chicks or ducklings to a minor within 1 week of the Easter holiday. 

It is a park rule violation to be in a public park with a sleeveless shirt. $10 fine. This would include joggers that go shirtless. (1898) 

Baltimore City 
You may not curse inside the city limits. 

Though you may spit on a city roadway, spitting on city sidewalks is prohibited. 

Though clotheslines are banned, clothes may be draped over a fence. 

You can not have a antenna exposed outside of your house yet you can have a 25' satellite dish. 

Ocean City 
Eating while swimming in the ocean is prohibited. 

A law from the early 1900's prohibits men from going topless on the Boardwalk. (Repealed)
