Los Angeles Drug Paraphernalia Lawyer
Drug Crime Defense Attorney in Los Angeles
Possession of drug paraphernalia is a crime in California. Drug paraphernalia refers to equipment, products, or materials that are modified for making, using, or hiding illegal drugs such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, or other controlled substances. Drug paraphernalia typically falls into two groups, user-specific and dealer-specific. User paraphernalia is generally made up of such items as pipes, rolling papers, smoking masks, "roach clips," syringes, cocaine freebase kits, and small containers for hiding drugs. Dealer paraphernalia is made up of items used by dealers to prepare illegal drug portions for street traffic, such as small scales, vials, and baggies.
