Former candidate, talk radio host arrested on drug charges

A former candidate who recently launched his own talk radio show has been arrested and charged with multiple drug offenses.

Republican Jim Price of Wichita was arrested last month and charged in Sedgwick County. Prosecutors say that on May 17 he had 129.55 grams of dabs, a highly-concentrated hash oil, with intent to distribute, which is a felony in Kansas. He also faces misdemeanor charges of possession of steroids and marijuana, court records show.

He was initially arrested in May on suspicion of illegally possessing a gun and marijuana, but was not charged in court for that case until last week, court records show. The Wichita Eagle first reported that incident in September, when Price was running for a seat in the Kansas House. At that time, Price denied the arrest and charges had not been filed in the case.

Prosecutors filed charges against Price on March 25. That day, he bonded out of jail. The state is not pursuing gun-related charges, according to court filings.

2. How concentrated?

HIGHLY concentrated. I wish people wouldn't fear the weed so much. But, it's Kansas after all.

3. So it's true, you have to be a felon to host right-wing radio.
