Drug paraphernalia laws are left largely up to interpretation of arresting officers and the prosecutor. An object might be determined to be drug paraphernalia if:
1. The owner admits it was used for drugs.
2. The owner has past drug convictions.
3. Law enforcement finds drug residue on or in the object.
4. There are instructions or descriptive materials pointing to its use.
An expert may also testify in court, explaining the common ways in which the object can be used for drugs. It's important to work with a criminal defense attorney to defend against these allegations. Reach out to us today to discuss the details of your case.
