Bong Hits 4 Jesus - The Game



Sign up for occasional news, action alerts, and games from SSDP!

Has the recent "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" case confused you about the current state of free speech rights in public high schools?

As we informed you earlier this week, the Morse v. Frederick Supreme Court ruling was a mixed bag for students -- giving high school principals permission to punish students for speech that encourages illegal drug use, while at the same time protecting speech that promotes drug policy reform.

To help you sort out which speech is protected and which is not in this post-Bong Hits 4 Jesus world, we've teamed up with our friends at RedAphid.com to create "Bong Hits 4 Jesus - The Game!"

Will you be a permissive principal, who allows all speech no matter how much it encourages drug use? Or will you seek to restrict all speech that the Court has deemed punishable under the Constitution? It's up to you, but watch out who you suspend -- you might get sued!

If you support students' rights to free speech, check out SSDP's new line of "Free Speech 4 Students" apparel. Your purchase helps us to protect young peoples' ability to speak out against destructive drug policies.

And don't forget to share this game with your friends by clicking "Get The Code" in the game screen and pasting the code into your Myspace profile or blog!

I'm not sure that your game does much to clarify what the supreme court ruling does and does not allow...

there has always been and always will be drug use. what i don't understand is why am i allowed to drink myself to death and smoke over priced, over package, over chemical infused cigarettes, but i can't grow a specific type of plant in my backyard? it's a beautiful, fragrant, and useful gift from nature. former pot smoker, weaver, artist, factory worker and driver...i could never do any of those things if i was drinking. the war on drugs is a waste of time and money. i say give all the heroin addicts and crack addicts as much as they want and they'll just die...no more related crimes and they'll die. no problem. crap, did i do a free speech thing? which politician spent enough money to get your vote? crap, did i just do it again? IMPEACH CONGRESS! crap, did that just put me on another FBI list? you guise keep on with this stuff! (the material or substance from which all things are or can be made). to fight the good fight, sometimes you just got to be silly.

I know it's just a game, but shouldn't "It's OK" always be a correct answer? Like #9 says, "Free Speech 4 Students."

meejies said...

cute idea, lousy implementation. i have to agree with the first commenter. what's the rationale for "suspend" being the right choice for the "coke lines 4 bush" banner? isn't that just the sort of political speech that tinker v. des moines protected? i'm a bit bummed that boingboing called this "educational", because i think it falls pretty short of that.

Micah Daigle said...

Thanks for the constructive criticism, folks! Let me try to clear some things up:

First, this game was made by a volunteer with very limited time, so we were admittedly unable to make this game perfect. Our goal was to show people that "Morse v. Frederick" suppressed a very narrow (yet vague) set of speech, and that students can still discuss drug policy, as long as it doesn't blatantly promote drug use.

---

"I know it's just a game, but shouldn't "It's OK" always be a correct answer?"

You'll notice that if you press "It's OK" for all of them, you become SSDP's principal of the year! SSDP would prefer that principals refrain from punishing students for exercising their free speech rights.

However, suspensions are "correct" in the sense that you've taken on the role of a principal trying to figure out who you can and cannot suspend in a post-Bong Hits 4 Jesus world (read the Intro). That's why ambiguous phrases that promote illegal drug use while also carrying a political message (like "Medical Marijuana 4 Sick People") are "OK" in the sense that a lawsuit would have to probably have to settle the dispute.

This is briefly explained in the "Tips" when you click the little question mark. Imperfect to be sure, but again, we weren't trying to make this perfect.

---

"What's the rationale for 'suspend' being the right choice for the 'coke lines 4 bush' banner?"

Admittedly, this one's up in the air, and probably should have been "It's OK," especially in light of the "Chicken Hawk in Chief" case.

The take away message is that public school administrators have a daunting task of figuring out just what speech the Court has allowed them to punish, and they should take great care when handing down their punishments. Clearly, the best policy would be to allow all speech so long as it is not completely disruptive. But it looks like there may have to be many more lawsuits to clear up this mess of legal precedent.

For further reading, Volokh Conspiracy has a great analysis.

Fairness Doctrine Good said...

I find your game to have some good trick questions in there. This whole ruling is completely bogus, just like their ruling on eminant domain. Here, they rule that using drugs in a protest is a promotion of drugs?!? Drugs are nouns, not verbs. You can not outlaw a thing thinking that that thing's own mention is suggestion? The context is what matters, not the very thing itself.

Why don't we get rid of "daggers" from protests, they kill. Yet "daggers" are apart of puns, quotes, and phrases, used in protests. On that note, "Marijuana leaves, not mushroom clouds!" Are not suggestions that you should go out and fill up your bong and go out and get groovy, it is a funny phrase that is not worthy of banning.

I thought that the sSupreme Court gave more consideration and study to their rulings, apparently not. These are blatant and not thought out decisions that steamrole over definition and maturity.

Thanks for the constructive feedback :) regarding the Overworld limitations and linearity, I only felt it limited in the sense that you aren't truely able to 'explore' fully in the way that could in other Zelda games - remember the underground caverns you could once find? - and quite frankly I miss that and it is basically linear in the sense that your destination is already chosen, yes you are still exploring and in a wonderful new way but this Overworld 'Transport' also highlights the limitations of what Nintendo can do with a 3D Zelda game on the DS but what they 'have' achieved is still impressive and I do acknowledge that fully.
