How low can you go?
Baggy pants are the subject of Controversy by many states.
Georgia is actually banning this style and if caught is charging a fine.
The first laws to be made against sagging pants started in Declambre, Louisiana. The laws were effective since June 11, 2007 they prohibited the undecent exposure of the backside when sagging pants. In Louisiana the consecuences are a $500 fee or up tp 6 months incarceration, however each state has different punishments states Niko Koppel from the Huffington Post.http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/30/fashion/30baggy.html

Crazy new and UNCONSTITUTIONAL laws being enacted around the country are nothing new. In the age of using fear to control, any law can get passed by convincing the sheep of the world that it some how threatens their perfect rainbow and unicorn filled safety. The newest trend of absurd laws being enacted in the US is to make it a crime to wear “saggy trousers”. Following in the footsteps of a few other towns, Flint, MI has also enacted such a law. You know because anyone wearing their jeans below their belly button must be drug smoking, gone toting criminals (it certainly has nothing to do with creating a “reason” to search otherwise innocent civilians)! To help you understand the law, that could result in up to A YEAR in jail or $500.00 fine, the Detroit Free Press created the sweet illustration above. They also provided a special concealed message for MI residents: “Flint residents now have to watch their butts because Police Chief David Dicks is on the
lookout.”
