As they do annually, our beloved legislators have passed thousands of new laws that will be going into effect this year. As we stated in 2017, instead of writing new laws, legislators should repeal thousands of existing ones, or at least erase 10 for every new one written until total laws have been reduced by at least 80 percent! This would be a giant step towards restoring true justice in our U.S. legal system. Many of the newly written laws will certainly reshape the political and legal landscape in the coming months. They cover a broad spectrum, from recreational marijuana use and paid leave from work to traveling barbers and exotic pets. What follows is a glimpse of notable new laws that we have selected for this post.
