If you have Colorado plates and you are driving in a state neighboring Colorado while holding cannabis, well, you might just be an idiot.

"It's been business as usual," Kellerman said. "When we run across it, we take appropriate action."

In other words, rich white people go free, everyone else gets arrested.  SOP.

Meh, every state that borders Colorado is looking to bust transporters of weed, not just Kansas.

Sir did you know you were doing a somebody that digs the sweet sweet doobie vibe in a Johnny Unitas Zone?

Yeah, that was my statement when it first passed: I will not be driving cross country with Colorado plates for a while.

/our license plates are green
 
2014-02-13 02:57:10 PM
"When you cross that border, it's just like stepping back in time,"

I suppose that's one way to put it.

They won't just be looking for Colorado plates, they'll be looking for anyone who looks like they might be a stoner that went there to bring some home.

Where's the Obvious tag? States bordering Colorado have been thinking about weed busts on Colorado vehicles since the law was proposed.
 
2014-02-13 03:39:18 PM
Well... I can see some people "forget" that their neighbor arent 420 friendly.

It's like the Vermont cars in Springfield MA.   The only people driving to Springfield from VT on a weekend night are buying smack.

Thus proving the whole pot illegality fiasco has been about enforcement revenue, not public safety.

Naturally. The cops and municipal governments have to make money somehow right?
 
2014-02-13 03:40:36 PM
I approve of this because if I'm in a car that enters Kansas I'm probably tied up in the trunk.

If you have Colorado or Washington plates out of state and appear to be under 50, you will get pulled over.
 
2014-02-13 03:42:16 PM
Whatever, I drove though Kansas once and it sucks. Some pretty parts, but the whole place smells hot corn and there's weird jesus signs all over.
 
2014-02-13 03:42:19 PM
That's why when I transport weed into Kansas I always take my plate off my car.
And disengage my headlights.
 
2014-02-13 03:42:51 PM
Police exist to protect people from harming other people, period. Police do not exist to sit around and haul off to jail someone carrying a plant in their car, despite what the "letter of the law" might indicate.

I don't think this one is even about the money, those bordering county sheriffs and highway patrols are getting a hard on just thinking about busting stoners.

That's just a fringe benefit.

Duh, Kansas isn't the only one. If you have Cannabis and are driving out of the state, don't smoke in your vehicle and 'seal' up the herb and stash it in the trunk. Use a hermetically sealable jar or better yet, commercial grade vacuum sealed packaging.

Funny thing is, I have absolutely no idea what a stoner looks like.  I really don't.
In my experience, there is no way to profile a marijuana user.

I personally have known plenty of white collar professionals, suburban soccer moms, and others who completely defy the stereotype.  There's a fair chance that many of the people you know smoke marijuana and you would have no idea.

Could be fun for trolling cops.

Get a big marijuana sticker on your car, make sure all your papers are in order, no illegal items are in the car, and the car is in excellent condition, then go see how many times they pull you over to search for drugs.

Yep which is why the justice department needs to lower its classification so they lose incentive to charge people and get huge fines to prop up their budget.

CSB:
Recently relocated to Kansas from Colorado, and one thing I will say is this: for a "conservative," "small government" state, there sure are a lot of cops around here.  I'm certain I've seen more 5-0 in the month that I've been here than over ten years of living in Colorado.

Also, you'll probably be written up for the busted headlight, taillight, oh, and assaulting an officer and resisting arrest, if the Kantard in blue is feeling ornery.

If you have Colorado plates and are driving in Kansas -AT ALL-, you might be an idiot.
Kansas has, for years, seen Colorado drivers purely as an income stream, along with any of the Eastern states and especially Californians. The times we had to go through for business reasons and couldn't avoid it , we were searched, piled with LOTS of illegal and unenforceable tickets, and threatened with vehicle seizures if we complained. Since we were driving across on business, which the cop deemed 'commercial purposes' the cops nailed us for not paying a commercial tax like truckers do. needless to say our company had lawyers sort it out and got a judge to drop all six tickets, otherwise it would have been thousands in fines.
 Another group actually did have their rental van seized, under the guise that neither the rental contract insurance agreement nor their personal insurance card was valid proof of insurance, the first not being an approved format of insurance card and the second not listing the specific vehicle. That was an impounding and impending auction of the van, as well as thousands in fines. The rental company got lawyers involved in that one and they backed off pretty quick on keeping the van, but had it been a personal van it would have stayed seized. Like us, they also got a ticket for transporting cargo for commercial purposes (for driving themselves across the state) as well.
 Kansas cops are crooked as hell, and without company backing we would have been screwed trying to drive across. The only personal transportation I know of was two freinds years ago, and they got stopped in the middle of the night on the highway for a 'bald tire', later amended to 'dim taillight', and would up in jail and - you guessed it - the vehicle impounded, as they only had temp tags for Colorado, which the cops claimed that Kansas did not recognize the legitimacy of temporary registrations.

 Kansas is a scary goddamn place.
