An "ILLEGAL" bumper sticker?

The question I have today; When can the cops force you to take a bumper sticker off your car? We'll talk about that on today's PhilCast with a local twist after laying out the story.

Here it is, the bumper sticker in question...

See that leaf? Police in Memphis did and they forced a couple of Ohio State Buckeye fans from Texas to pull over because of it.
The cops thought that was a marijuana leaf.
Maybe one too many donuts clouded their eyes and minds.

Notice the football too?
Maybe take note of the fact that THIS is an Ohio State helmet...the BUCKEYES?!


According to the story the cops still made an issue of this.

My question overall becomes this-even if it WAS a marijuana leaf would the authorities have the right to make you take that off your car?

What CAN the cops force you to remove from your personal property?

We'll discuss on the show this afternoon.
