DYK Coloured Contacts are Kinda Illegal in Calgary?

Hey, if you were planning on using coloured contacts for your Halloween costume, ya might want to re-think…or at least NOT buy them from a costume shop here in Calgary. Apparently, that’s hecka illegal.

“In Calgary it is illegal to buy or sell non prescription contact lenses at costume shops.”

What?! What a bizarre law. I guess if you buy them online it’s ok..?

Here’s some other super weird Alberta Laws:

  • It’s illegal for someone under the age of 15 to be outside without a guardian between the hours of 12am and 6am in St. Paul, Alberta.
     
  • Current law in Alberta states that it is against the law to paint a wooden ladder.
     
  • In Alberta it’s illegal to set fire to the leg of a wooden-legged man. 
     
  • Rails to tie horses must be provided by businesses in Alberta.
