The only previous discussions I can find about legal questions here are ones asking about questions involving growing illegal plants/drugs.
But what I would like to clarify, is whether or not questions asking about legal matters involving plants are on-topic or not.
For example a question asked last year about what is needed to ship plants in the US:
And a closed, question about the US State laws regarding growing a plant:
And a question about the availability of an herbicide in one US state:
Are legal questions on-topic here?

Great question! There is no point in asking questions about interpretation of aspects of the law:
- laws regarding plants change from city to state/province to country.
- plant laws are often part of overlapping jurisdictions at any level of government. For example: Food and Drug department says yes, Agriculture says no, Environment is not sure
- plant laws change and answers become outdated. Marijuana laws are an example of this.
With legal questions the answer usually seems to be "It depends". This does not make a good topic to be answered if the objective is a definitive answer that has enduring value.
