Kansas Marijuana Laws

Kansas Marijuana Laws

In Kansas, cannabis is illegal both for personal and medical use. All attempts to legalize medical marijuana in Kansas were unsuccessful (as of July 2016).

A person who possesses any amount of the substance may be imprisoned for up to 6 months and fined $1,000.

Selling up to 25 grams of cannabis is a level 4 felony punishable by a sentence up to 51 months in prison and a maximum fine of $300,000. Distribution of larger amounts of cannabis is punishable by harsher penalties. Furthermore, sale of cannabis within 1,000 feet of a school zone increases the severity of the punishment.

Growing 4-50 plants entails a fine of up to $300,000 and incarceration for no more than 83 months.
