Drug Possession Charge Details

To be in possession of an illegal substance, you must have either had it on your immediate person or in your control, in most circumstances. For example, if you have marijuana in your pocket or under your bed, you can be charged with possession in either circumstance. Kansas follows all federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) guidelines for ruling substances as illegal narcotics, such as cocaine, heroin, and illegally obtained or used prescription drugs. Possessing any amount of recreational marijuana is also strictly illegal, constituting a misdemeanor that can be penalized with a six-month jail sentence and a $1,000 fine.

The penalties for a drug possession charge can escalate depending on:

  • Substance
  • Amount
  • Location of arrest
  • Prior criminal history
