Like California, Florida’s constitution is easy to amend – too easy sometimes. It takes relatively few signatures for an initiative to make it on the ballot. On top of that, the legislature may offer its own pet projects to the electors, and loves to do so. Some of those initiatives are awfully mundane for a constitution.
And that is how it became unconstitutional in the state of Florida to confine pregnant pigs to a cage.
But Floridians may rest easy. They do not have a monopoly on the absurd. At the opposite end of the country, in Skamania County, Washington, it is illegal to kill either Bigfoot or Sasquatch. The county commissioners held firm in the face of unbelievers. There is evidence, they say like an M&M seeing Santa Clause for the first time, that they do exist.
