TOPEKA, Kan. — The Kansas attorney general and leaders of law enforcement agencies are reminding Kansans that marijuana possession remains illegal in the state.
Today, Attorney General Derek Schmidt issued a statement along with Kansas Highway Patrol Superintendant Col. Ernest Garcia, Kansas Sheriffs Association President and Gray County Sheriff Jim Kramer and the Kansas Association of Chiefs of Police President, Wamego Police Chief Mike Baker:
“With the recent coverage of ‘marijuana tourism’ since our neighbors in Colorado legalized marijuana under their state law, we wish to remind Kansans that the possession, sale or use of marijuana is still a crime in Kansas. Kansas law enforcement has seen and seized marijuana acquired in Colorado and brought illegally to Kansas. We remind Kansans never to bring marijuana into Kansas from Colorado. Doing so is a crime, and Kansas still enforces its law.”
