  1. This scene happens all the time. Doing illegal actions of marijuana can lead you to danger. Better be ready for the consequences. I hope this will stop and people will learn to follow the right and legal process.

  2. People should be very aware of a state’s law. There are only selected places that allow growing marijuana. I hope that every citizen in Bourbon Country is educated about their law.

    1. According to Bob Reed at the Bourbon County Sheriff’s Office this is not true.
      “Absolutely NOT. Marijuana is still considered a controlled substance. Depending on the amount that you are in possession of could be a misdemeanor or a felony. No form of marijuana is legal in the state of Kansas,” Reed said.
