Bong hits 4 Jesus!

A student was suspended for displaying a banner that read, "Bong Hits 4 Jesus", and now the Supreme Court is hearing the case. You can read all about it here.

The court is having a hard time deciding whether they want to let students keep their rights, or whether censoring free speech should be allowed.

The thing is, the politics of the administration will rule out if these kids' rights of free speech are to be enforced by them, so I say let free speech rule! The constitution never says, "Free speech in certain places," it says Freedom of Speech. The Supreme Court's job is to interpret the Constitution, that is it.

If school principals are allowed to censor what students are saying, the absolute power could get pretty ugly. One can only hope that bong hits 4 Jesus paves the way for more free speech in the schools, and doesn't backfire in the kid's face.
