Mass balloon releases are illegal in several states, cities, and countries. Releasing balloons and sky lanterns should be illegal everywhere, because after all, it is simply littering. US States that have laws: California, Connecticut, Florida, Tennessee and Virginia.


Its a felony in Florida.

I’d rather watch my favorite team get their shite kicked in by Mississippi state than read obscure balloon facts by OweO

I pick them up all the time when I'm hunting. Releasing them is trashy.

Anthony Brasfield saw romance when he released a dozen heart-shaped balloons into the sky over Dania Beach with his sweetie.

Brasfield, 40, and his girlfriend, Shaquina Baxter, were in the parking lot of the Motel 6 on Dania Beach Boulevard when he released the shiny red and silver mylar balloons and watched them float away Sunday morning.


Nothing says romance like cheap balloons in a Motel 6 parking lot

Wait a sec. I was just told in 60 Minutes that this is one of the felonies that would prevent someone from voting in FL. So the question is why would you bring this up AND how many felons in FL have been charged with this crime?

If a girl is from a trailer park in Florida that's probably a big deal.

quote:

On July 2, 1982, Larry Walters (April 19, 1949 – October 6, 1993) made a 45-minute flight in a homemade airship made of an ordinary patio chair and 45 helium-filled weather balloons. The aircraft rose to an altitude of over 15,000 feet (4,600 m) and floated from the point of takeoff in San Pedro, California, into and violating controlled airspace near Los Angeles International Airport. During the landing, the aircraft became entangled in power lines, but Walters was able to safely climb down. The flight attracted worldwide media attention and inspired a later movie and imitators.

Fun fact, helium is the only gas that can escape our atmosphere. There is a trail of helium around the path the Earth orbits the sun.

That dude brought up so many obscure felonies, I doubt they account for 1% of those they’re trying to allow to vote.

Sky Lanterns look so cool released en masse, but goodness it's terrifying because half the people frick them up. I got burned hard when we did that in Wichita.
