When it comes to drug crimes in Kansas, possession of a controlled substance
is already a serious offense as it is. The consequences only worsen, however,
when it is proven that the offender was in possession of the drug with
the intent to distribute it to others. Simple possession (K.S.A. § 21-5706) is a drug severity level 4
felony, whereas possession with intent (K.S.A. § 21-5705) is a drug severity level 3
felony . As such, it is punishable by a maximum of 23 months in prison according
to the drug sentencing grid, as well as a fine as high as $300,000 as
Also, Kansas law requires that
drug tax stamps be placed on illegal drugs. Failing to adhere to this can lead to an additional
felony charge as well as civil fines and liens.
