Time Magazine Article About Regulating Psychics

Time Magazine on September 2nd had an article "In the Crystal Ball: More Regulation For Psychics".  It states that in Warren, Mich. this month fortune tellers must be fingerprinted and pay a yearly fee of $150. plus a $10 background check just to read fortunes.  The city says it's to weed out "unsavory characters".  Here's a little trivia I didn't know: "1 in 7 Americans consulted a psychic or fortune teller in 2009".  Wow! That's a lot of people!
In Annapolis, MD they issue what is called a Fortune-telling License. And in Salem, MA the town put a "cap" on the number of local fortune tellers are allowed to practice there trade there.
Very interesting article. Please read it. There's more to raise your eyebrows to.

 In the Crystal Ball: More Regulation for Psychics


  1. Thanks for the post. Any time any profession becomes regulated that adds credibility to it. Its good to know they are regulating in some places now.

  2. Your welcome! In a way it's good that they do. When a psychic begins to ask for jewelry or a car and so on. Yup, they have to be regulated.
