Penalties for Paraphernalia Possession in Kansas

Drug paraphernalia possession is commonly charged as a misdemeanor offense, but if the nature of the crime is severe, you can be charged with a felony. Penalties for just possession of paraphernalia, however, are often much lighter than those for distributing or manufacturing drug paraphernalia.

If Convicted, Penalties for Paraphernalia Possession Can Include:

  • Jail or prison sentence: Drug paraphernalia penalties can range from 90 days to 1 year in jail
    Fines: For first time offenders, courts will often impose fines instead of jail time. Repeat offenders can expect fines of $1,000 or more

  • Probation: Common probation orders can include maintaining employment, paying all fines and court costs, and performing random drug tests.
