Bong Hits 4 Jesus

In 2002, 18-year-old Juneau Douglas High School senior Joseph Frederick was suspended from school after displaying a banner during a school supervised event that read "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" along the route of the Winter Olympics torch. Frederick filed a lawsuit against JDHS claiming his first amendment rights had been violated. The case ended up in the Supreme Court, which ultimately ruled that a school principal may restrict student speech without violating the First Amendment.

Part of the settlement involved taping and broadcasting a student forum on free speech. That forum was held at the Juneau Douglas High School recently and 360 North will be airing it at 8pm on Wednesday, April 22. The forum was moderated by Stewart Jay, a professor at the University of Washington's Law School; and Ann Gifford, the School District's attorney.
Don't miss this Free Speech Forum on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22 at 8pm!
