If she wants to influence the legislators in Oklahoma, maybe she should get the help of Pat Robertson. They'd sooner (pun not intended) listen to him than a free-spirited woman.

They are a heavily Republican state.  Republicans believe government should get out of our personal lives and leave us alone to exercise our individual freedoms.  So slam dunk, no?

(Long time ago) 'got pulled over in OK on a cross-country voyage.  My friend and I had just smoked.  Trooper ordered us out of the truck, and started searching, repeating the old "tell me and I'll be easy on you jazz."  When he was on the verge of discovery, we caved and told him where our small bag was (1/8 maybe).

He took us to the side of the truck hidden from traffic, had us dump the bag in the breeze, and tossed our bowl in a field.  Then he wished us a good day and sent us on our way.  Phew.

I think onerous laws are less likely to be enforced.

That's a good thing to say. Seeing as how he let them go, if they had said that from the start, they would have ended up seeing the inside of jail.

That's right, once he had probable cause, the 4th, at least on the car, went(no pun intended) out the window. All he would have had to do was call in a canine unit and they, at that time would have seen the inside of jail. He wasn't out to be a prick to them.

It's a tricky matter.  On one hand, an officer can say "Just tell me where it is and I'll let you go" and then totally take you to jail when you do and it would be a completely legit arrest and air tight case.  On the other hand, if you start pulling all those "I have the rights and I'm going to exercise them" thing you can almost guarantee an arrest, stay in jail, and MAYBE a lawyer can get it dismissed.  Sadly, you're odds are better playing nice then whipping out the Constitution.  Of course, being white doesn't hurt either.

Fact of the matter, it's always, always, better, to respect than to disrespect. I realize there are many times that this is not the case. There are times that citing the 4th is the best thing to do. The fact still is, is that most people will treat you with respect, when you do so to them. Disrespect will almost instantly cue a bad case of ill will towards you. Some will learn this early on in life, others, later, and by tough means.
