One of the most common drug possession cases is possession of marijuana. Upon a first conviction of a simple possession of marijuana charge, you can be sentenced up to 6 months in jail and fined up to $1,000.00. Upon a second conviction of a simple possession of marijuana charge, you can be sentenced up to 1 year in jail and fined up to $2,5000.00.


After a second conviction of a simple possession of marijuana charge and upon being charged a third time, you will be charged with a felony. If you are charged with a felony and you are convicted of the charge, then you will be subject to the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines.  Depending on your criminal history, you can be sentenced up to 42 months in jail and fined up to $100,000.00. Further, you can be charged with a felony upon a first possession of marijuana charge depending on the facts and circumstances of your case, and, again, if you are convicted of the charge, then you will be subject to the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines.


Drug Possession cases involving other types of simple possession of drugs such as cocaine or methamphetamine are a Level Five drug felony offense. Upon conviction of the charge, you will subject to the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines, and depending on your criminal history, you can be sentenced up to 42 months in jail and fined up to $100,000.00 upon a first conviction.
