Kansas Statutes Annotated § 21-36a06 makes the possession of any controlled substance illegal. The legislation also outlines a scheme that charges certain offenses as crimes of different severity.
Although they are the most common type of drug crime, drug possession charges in any county throughout the state of Kansas are no minor matter. Depending on the type of drug or controlled substance you are arrested for, you can face serious terms of imprisonment. In addition, Kansas imposes enhanced penalties for possession cases that involve large amounts or quantities and for habitual offenders. While other states are in the process of legalizing marijuana, Kansas continues to punish a second, simple possession of marijuana (regardless of quantity) as a felony.
