Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: Uggghhh. The judge just sentenced me to 78 months in prison. Should I just grin and bear it?

Answer: If you grin, he may add six more months to your sentence. Just bear it. (The National Law JournalSmile gets defendant six more months in prison - and Eighth Circuit affirms)

2) Question: Our toddler's Grandma has cancer. Her doctor recommended that she use marijuana to ease her pain, and she whipped up a batch of pot-laced cookies. But then our child found the cookies and ate them, and had to go to the hospital. Can we get in any trouble for this?

Answer: If toxicology tests show marijuana is found in the child's system, family members could face child endangerment charges. (The Associated PressGrandma's pot cookies land 3-year-old Southern California boy in hospital)

3) Question: My 2002 Saturn was improperly towed and impounded. Unacceptable!! I'm going to sue the county -- does $500 billion seem like a reasonable demand? 

Answer: It does not. (Abnormal Use, Ohio Woman Sues Over Towed Car, Demands $500 Billion)
