Jail Time in Mobile if you are in possession of “spray string”
On top of being a confetti free city, the city officials in Mobile feels that it is important enough to make ANOTHER stupid law prohibiting the possession or use of “spray string” (which technicallys qualify as a confetti anyway)
Sec. 39-15. “Spray string,” “snap pops,” or similar matter or substances thereto prohibited. It shall be unlawful and an offense against the city for any person to have in his/her possession, keep, store, use, manufacture, sell, offer for sale, give away or handle any “spray string,” “snap pops,” or other matter or substances similar thereto, within the city within its police jurisdiction. (Ord. No. 39-002, Â§ 1, 1-4-94)
This is bullshit. I live in Mobile, and Mobile is where Mardi Gras started in America. Alot of people believe it started in a living shithole known as New Orleans, but this is not true. Anyway, every year during this event people throw confetti, spray string, moon pies, and all other kinds of shit onto the street and no one gets arrested.
Rip Taylor better watch out!
