The Day's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I just opened a condolence card from my husband's employer expressing sorrow for the death of his wife. But I'm his wife and I am alive. Can you help clarify this situation?

Answer: Sometimes husbands pretend that their wife has cancer and receive paid time off and cash gifts (and condolence cards) from their employers. It happens. (Union Leader, Police: Greenville man used fake cancer story) (via Jonathan Turley)

2) Question: I am a female deer. My buck husband and I have been trying to have a baby deer for some time now with no success. Any suggestions?

Answer: Are you in Maryland? Do you recall ever having been shot with a tranquilizer gun, briefly captured, and then returned to the wild?  If so, you may have been one of the first "beneficiaries" of a state program providing deer with birth control injections. Don't worry, it will wear off after one year! (Consumerist, You Get Free Birth Control In Maryland If You Happen To Be A Deer)

3) Question: I am trying to purchase my medical marijuana at the pharmacy but my American Express card keeps getting declined. My AmEx account is in good standing--what is the problem?

Answer: Sorry, marijuana can only be purchased with Visa or the Discover Card. (SmartMoney, As Delaware Legalizes Medical Marijuana, Amex Just Says No)
