Norfolk, Virginia Repeals ‘Psychic’ Ban

June 15th, 2024 Comments Off on Norfolk, Virginia Repeals ‘Psychic’ Ban

According to The Virginian-Pilot, this past Tuesday, Virginia’s Norfolk City Council repealed a more than century old law banning ‘“the practice of palmistry, palm reading, phrenology or clairvoyance” for money or other compensation in the city.’

The ban had been in place since 1915 in Norfolk, and in Norfolk County since 1956. Penalties for violators had included possible fines of up to $500 and up to six months in prison.

The City Council voted 7-1 to repeal the ban, which had apparently not been enforced in at least four decades.

Assuming, of course, the readers in the area aren’t doing anything shady … Good News!
