Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

Los Angeles Drug Possession Lawyer

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), drug paraphernalia includes any piece of equipment or product involved in producing or using an illegal drug. You can be arrested and convicted not only for possessing an illegal substance, but for possessing items that could be used for drug use. There are two main categories of drug paraphernalia: user specific and dealer specific.

User-specific products are for the personal use of drugs. They include:

  • Bongs
  • Pipes
  • Items used to conceal drugs
  • Marijuana grow kits

Dealer-specific products are used to prepare / distribute drugs. They include:

  • Plastic bags
  • Scales
  • Vials

According to the Controlled Substances Act, it is against federal law to own, sell, buy or transport drug paraphernalia. The California Health and Safety Code Section 11364 states that it is unlawful to possess any item used to smoke or inject controlled substances, including needles and pipes.
