You can listen to this fabulous debate about freedom of speech

In Morse v Frederick the Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 that schools can limit student speech that advocates illegal drug use. The majority opinion held that although students do have some right to political speech even while in school, this right does not extend to pro-drug messages. The majority held that Frederick's message, was reasonably interpreted as promoting marijuana use. In ruling for Morse, the Court affirmed that the speech rights of public school students are not as extensive as those adults normally enjoy, and that the highly protective standard set by Tinker would not always be applied to students.
