Fortune Tellers

Maryland is finally seeing the light as it prepares to end a 38-year ban on fortune telling in Carroll County. Apparently, Harford County lifted its ban last week.

Raise you hand if you knew that fortune telling was banned in Carroll and Hartford Counties?

I wonder if any raised the “Ah, gee, this blatantly violates the 1st Amendment and is it incredibly paternalistic” argument when these lawyers were created some 30 odd years ago. If you told me was from 1905, it would make sense. But these laws were passed in the 70s.
