Dwarf Tossing Illegal in Florida
In Florida, no dwarf-tossing is allowed. Owners of commercial establishments where alcohol is sold may be fined up to $1,000 if they participate in or permit any contest of dwarf-tossing, since it was outlawed in 1989. A Florida state legislator tried to repeal the law in 2011, but wasn't successful. Dwarves sued to overturn the law in the early 1990s, claiming it was an infringement of their right to earn a living. Apparently dwarf-tossing is okay in a church or in an Elks Lodge, where no elk-tossing is allowed.
