What is KRS 218A?

The Controlled Substance Act is codified in Kentucky Revised Statutes at KRS 218A.  This act became effective June 8, 2011 and superseded the Uniform Narcotic Drug Act which was in KRS 218.   This Controlled Substance Act spells out all scheduled drugs, prescriptions and classifies all substances. If a drug is classified, various drugs are only available by prescription, and subject to the KASPER reporting.  The Act also identifies criminal penalties for possession and trafficking of various drugs.  Nearly all possession cases and trafficking cases which are handled in state court is charged through KRS 218A et. al. The controlled substance act can be very confusing due to all of the various elements therein.  Included are also forfeiture provisions, penalties for transactions with children, illegal distribution and marijuana. If you have been charged with criminal violations of KRS218A, you should hire an experienced criminal defense attorney as early in the process as possible.  In Northern Kentucky, contact Michael Bouldin for consultation at [email protected] or call 859-581-6453 (581-MIKE).
