Black, White, Burger, and Frankfurter

Trivia about some of the Justices of the United States Supreme Court:

Black and White served on the same bench for a period of ten years.
Justices Hugo L. Black and Byron R. White served together from 1962-1972.

There was a Justice Burger, and a Justice Frankfurter.
Justice Warren E. Burger, 1969-1986, and Justice Felix Frankfurter, 1939-1962.

There was no Justice Milkshake, or Justice Soda. Nor was there a Justice Bacon N. Eggs.

Also quite noticeable is the sheer number of cases involving unlawful arrests and seizures concerning our favorite plants cannabis sativa and cannabis indica, more popularly known as Mary Jane.

Oh how the court dockets would be freed from unnecessary clogging if only the plant was made legal.
