State Denies Political Activist “Hemp” on License Plate

The State of Oklahoma told Walker that his personalized license plate which uses the word “hemp” which seems to refer to marijuana and therefore, “may be offensive to the general public.” Oklahoma is a very conservative state, and referring to marijuana in any form would probably draw major complaints from the public, but does that give the state the right to deny Walker his voice?
Walker claims that it is not used for marijuana, but for saving the environment. He is not a pothead, but wants it legalized for industrial use. What do you think? Is this the way industry goes about using material for industrial use, or is Walker walking a thin line here?
KFOR reports, ”Industrial hemp is used to make biodegradable items like diapers, paper, food and clothing; it can’t give you the high like marijuana can.” The argument is made that Walker’s civil liberties are being denied, and he will of course appeal the decision.
What happens if Tom Walker is denied his use of the word on his personalized plate? The state will stop all messages on personalized plates, and that will fix the problem. Who is Walker kidding? If he were driving a Lincoln or a Cadillac, one might believe him, but guess what car he drives? He drives a Volkswagen bus covered in peace signs and flowers. So do you believe the message is to legalize hemp for industrial reasons?
Tom Walker is one of those people who see a way to challenge the system, and if he can’t have it his way, he will throw a legal fit, and sue. That’s what America has become. Americans and Tom Walker will sue to get their way. If he wants hemp on his license plate, he should move to California, because he won’t be welcome in the State of Oklahoma if he continues with his hippie nonsense.
