The marijuana legalization group Fire It Up Kansas was denied the ability to adopt a highway because, they allege, of their group's beliefs.

“We don't see any reason for the rejection, other than we like to tell the truth about cannabis,” said founder Mike Golden.

State officials say that it's not their beliefs that the state finds problematic, but the fact that what they advocate directly contravenes state law. The possession, distribution and consumption of marijuana is illegal in Kansas.

“We don't want to advertise for that because their name is gonna be on our signs and I don't think that's acceptable,” said Benny Tarverdi of the Kansas Department of Transportation.

The Department also told Eyewitness News 12 that this is only the second application it's denied in the past decade.

The first was from the KKK.
