Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I saw yesterday on LBW that California may soon legalize the possession and use of small amounts of marijuana. What are the chances of this happening? Will there be an age requirement? I am only 2 years old.

Answer: I can't handicap the odds of Proposition 19 passing, but I'm 100 percent certain it will not legalize marijuana use by 2-year-olds. Sorry, Junior. (AP, Two Year Old Smokes Pot, on Tape)

Niceday 2) Question: All I said to the person suing my client as we walked out of court was, "have a nice day." Actually, no, wait, I said "have a nice day, you piece of sh*t." Is that going to be a problem?

Answer: In Illinois, at least, that greeting is enough to get you charged with ethical violations by the Bar. (Legal Profession Blog, Have A Nice Day)

3) Question: Why do you keep putting asterisks in your posts, like in Question 2 above and here? Do you think that this allows you to use curse words or something? Because it doesn't, mate!!

Answer: Sorry U.K. Advertising Standards Authority! I thought I was in the clear by using those asterisks. (Lowering the Bar, Asterisks Don't Make Expletives Okay, According to F**king Bureaucrats)
