    That question is asked to determine if you fit the qualifications of 5150 WIC, which mandates a 72 hour hold (in my state) for psychological testing.


    Section 5150 is a section of the California Welfare and Institutions Code (specifically, the Lanterman–Petris–Short Act or "LPS") which allows a qualified officer or clinician to involuntarily confine a person deemed to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to him or her self, and/or others and/or gravely disabled. A qualified officer, which includes any California peace officer or paramedic, as well as any specifically designated county clinician, can request the confinement after signing a written declaration. When used as a term, 5150 (pronounced "fifty-one-fifty") can informally refer to the person being confined or to the declaration itself, or colloquially as a verb, as in 'Someone was 5150'd'.
    CALIFORNIA WELFARE AND INSTITUTIONS CODE, SECTION 5150, second paragraph, "... an application in writing stating the circumstances under which the person's condition was called to the attention of the officer, member of the attending staff, or professional person, and stating that the officer, member of the attending staff, or professional person has probable cause to believe that the person is, as a result of mental disorder, a danger to others, or to himself or herself, or gravely disabled."

    I always answer no of course. And usually add that I'm disappointed with their rudeness, because of course, I still have the right to consider some questions invasive, & inappropriate.

    Hope you get better from the Yellow Jacket/ Hornet stings. I get stung all the time around here, hate those things. And yeah, I often consider hurting them, (Yellow Jackets of course).

    That's pretty much a standard question these days. If you have any particular "risk factors", certain medical history, taking certain meds, being a Veteran (especially a recent one), and of course if you say/do anything that makes them wonder, then they'll definitely ask, but it's pretty standard now.
