In Kansas in particular, make sure to leave plenty of following distance, use your turn signal like they taught you in driver's school, and don't carry large amounts of cash. Random targeted drug enforcement is very active in Kansas.

I have seen zero firsthand evidence of that.

It's probably worth mentioning, though, that the practice is common enough that the Kansas courts have ruled on it a number of times, issuing a various injunctions and so on against the Highway Patrol.

It did happen to me in 2019, although it ended without incident as I think unwittingly I didn’t give the cop anything to go off of to justify pushing for a more invasive investigation. After it was over he had already pulled someone else over before I was even able to leave the scene.
