Bong hits 4 Jesus
One more Register editorial for the night. The Supreme Court made a terrible decision in the "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" case, about a student who unfurled a banner with that slogan across the street from his high school in Alaska and was disciplined for it by the principal. To me it's another example of the "drug war exception" to the Bill of Rights. Where there's even a hint of a connection to the Holy War on Drugs the courts will bend over backward to give authorities power the constitution never ever intended them to have.
