It appears Michiganders will soon be getting a new way to travel to Canada. I have fond memories taking the Amtrak train to Toronto with my family as a kid, so I’m happy about this development!
Weird Michigan Laws You Won’t Believe:
Okay, so you might not be the conductor of the train, but you still can't drink.

According to Michigan law, "No man may seduce and corrupt an unmarried girl. Any man who shall seduce and debauch any unmarried woman shall be guilty of a felony, punishable by imprisonment in the state prison not more than 5 years or by fine of not more than 2,500 dollars; but no prosecution shall be commenced under this section after 1 year from the time of committing the offense." This law was put into place in 1931. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

I have to say that we like this one, since we're a radio station. According to a law in Detroit, "Willfully destroying your old radio is prohibited." (Photo by Chaloner Woods/Getty Images)
