High school student made a 14-foot paper banner which said Bong Hits 4 Jesus (he had seen that phrase on a snow board), which he held as the Olympic torch passed across the street from his high school on a national relay leading up to the 2002 winter games in Salt Lake City.

His Principal confiscated the banner and suspended him. The parade itself was not on school grounds, but the schools lawyers argue the event was like a school-sanctioned field trip -- students were dismissed from classes, and the band and cheerleaders entertained.

The case will be heard next week when the Court will hear arguments on Morse v. Frederick, in what legal experts say could be the most significant case on student free speech since the days of Vietnam War protests.

At stake is the 1969 landmark ruling Tinker v. Des Moines, which said that students do not "shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate."

what should the decision be?
