As absurd as it may sound, Trick or Treating over the age of 12 may get you in trouble.

In towns such as Meridian, MS, Bishopville, SC, Boonsboro, MD, and Chesapeake, VA, it is now illegal to trick or treat as a teen. If caught with a costume on, a pillowcase full of candy, and older than 12, the consequences can be unfortunate. Teens may get a fine from 25$-100$ or even as far as 6 months in jail. As a teenager myself I am appalled by this action.

It is hard enough being a teen and being excluded from childish activities, but now I feel obligated to undertake more adult-like recreation.
