Is it legal to possess a human skull in LA County

Los Angeles, CA |

50 years ago I bought a human skull from an educational supply company. Now my grandson wants me to bring it to his middle school for "show and tell". Is it still legal to own it? Legal to do the "show and tell"?

  1. If no laws were violated when you bought it fifty years ago then it should not be illegal now. You may want to clear it with the school first so they are not caught off guard.
