There are no laws against cannibalism in the United States. That is to say, if somebody voluntarily offered to give you some of their flesh or organs to eat, you definitely could. However, cannibalism is typically understood as the nonconsensual consumption of another person, and cases of cannibalism are often related to assault, murder, or the desecration of corpses. Bon appetit!

Maybe you do this all the time, or maybe you’ve never been allowed to because you thought it was illegal (or just plain dangerous). As is turns out, the states are split about 60/40 on this one. Even in the states that do have some level of restriction, the law often allows people to ride in the bed of a truck if they are employees, over the age of 18 or 19, or whenever they’re not on a highway.
