Louisiana Outlaws Cash Transactions for Used Goods


Louisiana has passed a bill making it illegal to pay for used goods with cash. You can no longer buy something at a yard sale, flea market, or anywhere else where cash payment is required. You must pay by check, money order, or electronic transfer instead. They claim this is targeting criminals. Yeah – good explanation, but totally unrealistic. The state is named after the King of France, so it is not unusual to see Louisiana adopting the same policies as France.

Most people are also unaware that the law in Louisiana is NOT the same as the rest of the nation. They did not follow English common law, but French. A jury trial does not require unanimous consent, instead, it is simply the majority.
