New Massachusetts PSA: ‘Pull Up Your Pants’ or Face Fines



Text  



The Black Mental Health Alliance of Massachusetts has released a Public Service Announcement warning citizens about the state’s penalties for sporting saggy pants. The announcement alerts baggy-pants wearers that sporting pants “hip-hop style” with your “underwear exposed” could result in fines of up to  $300 or even land you behind bars.

“You still think it’s cool?” a cop asks. “It’s the law. Pull up your pants. Respect yourself.”

Massachusetts law bans ”open and gross lewd and lascivious behavior” and warns that such behavior can be punished by up to three years in state prison or two years in county jail.
