Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

Phoenix Drug Crime Defense Lawyer

Most people don't realize how easy it is to get in trouble with the law. In fact, people don't even need drugs in their possession to be charged with a drug crime. Generally, even possessing drug paraphernalia is enough for a person to be arrested. What's more, the paraphernalia doesn't have to be on your person. Law enforcement may consider the following items "paraphernalia" in a criminal case:

  • Syringes
  • Pipes
  • Bongs
  • Rolling papers

Many people are arrested when drug paraphernalia is found in the trunks of their cars, the kitchen of their homes, or underneath the car seats. Sometimes, depending on where the drugs are found, your attorney can argue that the drug paraphernalia was not yours or that you were not aware of its presence. However, courts are skeptical; it takes proof in order for the judge to find these defenses credible.
