If someone lives in a place where adultery is illegal (eg Massachusetts), do they get punished for doing it in a country where it's legal?

    The law where you are is all that matters, not the law where you are from.

    Laws are only applicable to the country ( or local area) that the law is....so obviously not

    No. The reason for this is that the law is only applicable in that area.

    If you fly to Amsterdam, you can get wasted on weed, fly home, and as long as there's no residual trace left in your system, you'd be OK to drive etc.... and there's nothing the law could do

    There are many unenforceable laws on the books.
