Bowling Green Drug Crime Lawyer
Kentucky Drug Laws
In the state of Kentucky, recent changes have been made to the drug crime laws, and you should learn about them if you are facing an arrest for allegedly committing a drug crime. The Kentucky Legislature’s drug bill, H.B. 463, was enacted on June 8, 2011. This law substantially changed the drug crime penalties throughout the state. The primary change it made was to reduce the drug offense sentences for many misdemeanor drug crimes.
Drug possession is a common type of drug crime. Individuals who are caught with any type of illegal controlled substance in their possession can be charged with this offense. Other common types of drug crimes that can result in serious repercussions upon conviction include:
- Prescription drug fraud
- Intent to sell
