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'm a new father! The baby was born a few minutes ago. Where is the smoking area, I need to light up a marijuana joint and celebrate!

Answer: The smoking area is down the hall, then turn -- wait, what!? Dude, you may not light up a joint in a hospital, smoking area or no smoking area, baby or no baby. Sorry!  (AP, Pa. Man Celebrates Son's Birth with Joint, Faces Drug Charges, Say Police)

2) Question: I'm a police officer. This lady supposedly ran out on a bill at a restaurant, so we went to her residence to investigate. Now she's attacking me with some kind of plastic toy rocket or something? What should I do?

Answer: We've seen this before, officer. Sometimes people use “a rigid feminine pleasure device” as a weapon. That constitutes aggravated assault, and you don't have to stand for it. (Trib Local Gurnee, Police say woman attacked officer with sex toy)

Zoe car 3) Question: I see that automaker Renault wants to name its new line electric car the "Zoe?" Zoe Renault? That's my name! They can't do that, can they? First names are for humans!

Answer: Sorry, Zoe, but according to one French judge, first names are for cars, too.  (AP, Renault Can Call Car 'Zoe', Judge Rules)
