2. Wearing inappropriate clothing.

In many Muslim countries, you must dress modestly to avoid drawing unwanted attention in public, especially if you are a girl. Clothing should cover arms and legs, and underwear should not be visible. Iran and Saudi Arabia are demanding that women cover their arms and legs completely and wear a headscarf. In Iran, if you do not follow the dress code, you may be fined. But in Saudi Arabia, you can end up in jail.

4. Stealing cacti.

Certain native plants in Arizona in the United States are protected under state law. If you destroy them, it is considered theft and maybe a reason to put you in jail for several years.

5. Live together until marriage.

Group races have been banned in the East African country of Burundi on the basis of an argument that people use the activity as a pretext for organizing "uprisings" and as a cover for planning subversive activities. You can run alone, but 2 people make up a group. Some people go to jail for this.
