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 Journal, Smile 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 Press, Grandma'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)
