Illegal Drugs

Illegal drugs can get you into big trouble into Kansas – whether it’s making them, selling them, using them or simply having them.

For example, being charged with possession of marijuana could land you up to 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine, even for first-time offenders. (This is also the case if you’re caught with drug paraphernalia like a crack pipe or a syringe.) A good lawyer, however, will try to get a diversion for a first time offender.

If you are caught in possession of a harder drug, like methamphetamine or narcotics, you could be charged with a level-four felony conviction. This could mean more than three years in prison and a $100,000 fine.

The sale or distribution of drugs is generally known as trafficking, and it is considered a felony. A first-time offender could face 51 months in prison and $300,000 in fines. A second-time offender could face 17 years and $500,000 in fines.

Manufacturing drugs, such as operating a meth lab, is the most serious drug charge. The penalty could be 17 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
