Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I am required to submit urine samples for drug-testing as a requirement of my job. Just curious, but do the testers have the ability to detect it if I happen to submit drug-free but non-human urine?

Answer: Yes, they do have that ability. Stick with human urine. (SportsGuru, NFL Adds Three Games to Broncos LB D.J. Williams Suspension; Supplied Non-Human Urine for Test)

2) Question: I am a lawyer. Is it a problem if I accept my fees in cocaine?

Answer: Yes, it will be a problem on several levels. (Legal Profession Blog, Former Prosecutor Accepted Fees In Cocaine)

3) Question: I am honorary consul to a Eurpoean country. I've had a bit too much to drink but I really need to drive home. Can I play the "diplomatic immunity" card if I get pulled over?

Answer: No, because "driving [your] vehicle intoxicated would never fall within [your] official duties." (Naples Daily NewsDiplomat charged with DUI after crashing into tree, claims immunity) (via Legal Juice)
