Fortune Telling May Become Legal in Casper

While some cities are beginning to crack down on fortune telling, the 1929 law banning it in Casper, Wyoming may be getting repealed.

ABC Local News 8: The Casper ordinance banning fortunetelling for profit dates to 1929. Shop owner Nella Forest says so far, no one has arrested her -- or anyone else she knows -- for fortunetelling.

She says if a law's not being enforced, it needs to be taken off the books.

Forest also is a Wiccan, and says the law demeans her beliefs and feels like "discrimination."

The City Council has agreed to look into repealing the ordinance.
