In order to categorize different illegal drugs according to their level of danger and potential for misuse, Kansas legislature lists each controlled substance in K.S.A. §§ 65-4105 through 65-4113. Methamphetamine is listed as a Schedule II substance and is therefore a harshly punished drug crime. Charges of methamphetamine manufacture, distribution or possession could result in months or years in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines.
Below is a list of the basic meth offenses and their penalties:
- Manufacturing (K.S.A. § 21-5703): Severity level 1 felony; prison sentence of 170 months; fine of up to $500,000
- Cultivation and Distribution (K.S.A. § 21-5705): Severity level 3 felony; prison sentence of 34 months; fine of up to $300,000
- Possession (K.S.A. § 21-5706): Severity level 4 felony: prison sentence of 24 months; fine of up to $100,000
