Somehow, I don't think Jesus ever had to worry about the Apostles getting the munchies. SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters)-An Alaska high school violated a student's free speech rights by suspending him after he unfurled a benner reading "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" across the street from the school, a federal court ruled on Friday.
Joseph Fredeerick, a student at Juneau-Douglas High School in Alaska, displayed the banner-which refers to smoking marijuana-in January 2002 to try to get on television as the Olympic torch relay was passing the school.
Principal Deborah Morse seized the banner and suspended the 18-year-old for 10 days, saying he had undermined the school's educational mission and anti-drug stance.
Friday's ruling by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco overturned a decision by a federal court in Alaska that backed Frederick's suspension and said his rights were not violated. Since the pothead loser is probably still in high school, I'll bet he celebrated with his friends in "High" style.
