Maine is considering a bill that would legalize Viking funerals and, quote, "open-air cremations". The Viking funeral is where a person's remains are set on fire outside and sent off to sea.
Unfortunately, Viking funerals are basically illegal everywhere in the U.S. There are two spots in Colorado where you can burn people's remains outdoors, but they only allow 12 funerals a year.
But that might be changing. Maine is considering a bill right now that would legalize Viking funerals and, quote, "open-air cremations."
The only requirements are you'd have to do them through nonprofits that have at least 20 acres of space.
Maine already has the highest percentage of people picking cremation over getting buried, about three out of four people in Maine go for cremation.
