Is Drug Trafficking a Felony in Kentucky?

In Kentucky, drug trafficking and distribution is a felony in Kentucky. It is a very serious charge with penalties that can range from three years to life in prison. The charges depend on the type of substance, the quantity of the drug, the area in which distribution was intended and who the drugs were being sold to, among other possible factors. Distribution of heroin, for example, will typically be dealt with more severely than marijuana. Additionally, distributing to minors or in a school zone can make the penalties for distribution much harsher. Drug possession laws are under the authority of state or local authorities, whereas drug trafficking and distribution is under the jurisdiction of federal authorities.
