Sometimes a Cigar Is Just a Smoke

Busted! A proud new pop in Uniontown, Pa., lit up that which was not a celebratory cigar in the designated smoking area. Unfortunately for him, the sweet, distinctive marijuana odor caught the nose of a passing nurse, who mentioned it to the cop on the beat. It is not clear whether the still-anonymous dad is heading for a court date. He did, after all, give a perfectly reasonable explanation to the policeman: "I'm having a baby and wanted to get a buzz," according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review report.

If he does face the mellow-crushing threat of slammer time, he could certainly do worse than calling the daddy-daughter firm of Margolin & Margolin. Father Bruce has been battling anti-doobie laws for more than 30 years; daughter Allison — a grad of Columbia University and Harvard Law — now goes by the moniker L.A.'s dopest attorney. After all, a father and child devoted to marijuana reform? Who is going to work harder for a new father just trying to chill?
