Fresno Laws

Although there wasn't enough sources, there was enough information to identify the dumb laws in Fresno, California. As it was researched, some of these laws had good reasons and they're located in the Fresno Penal Code. When I was researching the dumb laws at first, the laws in other cities were really ridiculous. Like in Eureka, California it is illegal for a man with a mustache to kiss a girl in public. In Fresno, there are about 6 dumbs laws researched so far.
