yes, you have freedom of speech, but your personal freedom seems to be restricted in stupid ways, the teachers here are liable too, but they trust that their students aren't retarded and can handle themselves during recess, im not talkin about 10 year olds either, im talkin about 15-18 year olds who are very unlikely to accidentaly get hurt. im just saying that your nation is not as free as you pretend it to be, especially when it comes to 'harmless' drugs like weed.
I would certainly hope the teachers are liable there, but that doesn't change anything. It's not up to the teachers. It's whoever is in charge of the school to make those policies. Want to know why they can make those policies? Freedom. You don't
to go to those schools. You could be home schooled if you really wanted to leave whenever you wanted to. There are alternative options.
For weed, it's been being fought to be legalized for a while and states are slowly allowing it because that is the will of the people. You know, the people who had the freedom to stand for what they wanted. Personally I hope it's legalized so stoners will shut the fuck up about it, but I believe it should be regulated like alcohol. Like no smoking and driving, but that's a whole other argument.
You say we aren't as free as we think, but you haven't really listed anything by law that restricts our freedom. You could argue that
law restricts you, but that is just arguing semantics rather than reason. Laws are made for a purpose here. They are supposed to benefit citizens and for the most part they do. If a law pops up to restrict any freedom then it gets fought tooth and nail until it's thrown away. We take our rights very seriously here.
Can you mention some other ways that we aren't free?
Also, I don't think that's even a law here. It's just that schools enforce it by choice. My school let seniors leave early. That's not something enforced/encouraged by law. They had their own rules regarding attendance.

complementing someone is different than publicly calling them ugly
if a fat man laughed at another fat man for being fat, he would look stupid
but if a buff man, who spent hours a day at the gym, said another guy was built as well, it wouldn't at all be the same.
How so? In both situations you are stating your opinion on their appearance.
Saying someone is attractive is both a statement of opinion and a compliment, but mostly it's a statement of opinion as it isn't always taken as a compliment. Saying someone is ugly is both a statement of opinion and an insult, but mostly it's a statement as it isn't always taken as an insult.
First, your second comparisons are not similar to the initial situations. These two situations are not opinion based. Fatty is based on what he finds funny. Buff guy Bill is making a statement that isn't based on opinion. That's like saying it's my opinion if I say my hair is brown. I'm stating that my hair is brown because it is in fact brown.
Second, The initial comparison
the same. Boil it down and you have people stating their opinions of people's appearances, so why is one permitted and not the other?
Also, being attractive is a matter of preference so that faults your argument even more. In your opinion he is not attractive(I'm assuming because you heavily implied you think he's unattractive), but to some people he might. If he was attractive by their standards, would he be given the right to call her ugly? What gives you the right to dictate when people you deem "unattractive" can or cannot state their opinions about other peoples' appearance?
