Speak English only in Pahrump, Nevada
Up until February 2007, it was against the law to speak any language other than English in the town of Pahrump outside of Las Vegas. The law which was enacted in November, 2006 was quickly pulled. Pahrump is known as one of the towns in Nevada where brothel’s (whore houses) are legal.
