What is Crime Trafficking Marijuana?

Trafficking of controlled substance in Kentucky is generally a felony, however when the drug is marijuana it may be charged as either a misdemeanor, or a felony under certain circumstances.   Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney is the best bet to have the charges reduced or to obtain a favorable result.  The basic crime of trafficking of marijuana is a misdemeanor, however the crime can be charged with a felony if any of the following: 1) If the amount of marijuana seized is over 8 ounces., the charges become a Class D felony; 2) If the crime occurs within 1000 feet of a school then the charges become a Class D felony pursuant to KRS 218A.1411; 3) If the Defendant has previously been convicted, it is a second or subsequent offense, the charges become a Class D felony; 4) If the amount of marijuana is over 5 pounds, the charges become a Class C felony, punishable by 5-10 years in prison. KRS 218A.1421 also states that if the defendant possesses over 8 ounces of marijuana, that alone is sufficient to charge, and is prima facia evidence of, intent to sell or transfer.
