I don't understand how any jurisdiction may forbid for instance opening bids
at the one level with less than 8 HVP.

What they can do (and what I assume most have done) is to have restrictions
on agreements which implies opening such weak hands at the one level.

There is a difference.

The ACBL forbids agreeing to open at the one level with less than 8 HCP, and
I believe many other jurisdictions have similar regulations.  Why aren't
those regulations legal under L40B?

Psyching a 1S bid is legal, of course, as long as it genuinely is a psych.
