TOPEKA — Kansas authorities released a statement Tuesday reminding Kansans that marijuana is still an illegal substance in the state.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt was joined by the KHP Superintendent Col. Ernest Garcia, Kansas Sheriff’s Association President Jim Kramer and Kansas Association of Chiefs of Police President Mike Baker.

The statement was as follows:

“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.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
