You should check with the State Fish and Game Agency of the state you plan to keep the animal in. Your legal residency isn't really an issue.

If you live in a large metropolitan area of one of those states, I'd also check the county and city ordinances too. Some cities ban non-domestic mammals or require high fees for licensure.

All of the state agencies have websites, ....CHECK THE LAW.

Do not rely on verbal assurances you might receive from someone on the phone.

Illegal in Michigan. Illegal in Utah. Illinois is where the whole monkey pox thing started from, I'd be surprised if they were legal there... but as Bob said, do some calling around. Laws change all the time without anyone bothering to notify the public.
