NONE, not legal anywhere thank God. Lemurs are prosimians which is one step down from a primate which is what you and I are. They are also nocournal and require specialized diets and habitats, and good luck finding a vet that knows anything about them.
Please find some other way to be "different and cool" that does not involve a living, breathing, feeling thing.
none. Go build you a tent in the jungle and have all the lemurs you want!
