Dear 100 Hour Board,
I was having a discussion with a friend about marriage and first cousins. The whole problem with marrying your first cousin is that genetically, things go wacky, but what if they're adopted? My question is this, if your first cousin is adopted, LEGALLY are you allowed to marry them?

The laws are different for each state. For more than you wanted to know on laws regarding cousin marriage, see here: http://www.cuddleinternational.org/laws/laws-explained.html
