Possession of Drug Paraphernalia in Florida
In Florida, possession of drug paraphernalia can be considered a serious crime. If you are convicted for this first-degree misdemeanor, you may face up to a year in a county jail or a year of probation. Our lawyers focus on providing a strong and effective criminal defense.
What Is Considered “Paraphernalia”?
Almost any item related to using, selling or storing drugs can be considered drug paraphernalia under Florida law. In fact, just having a pipe that has residue or a pack of rolling papers may be enough to get a conviction if law enforcement agents are able to associate the items with drug use.
We represent people facing criminal drug charges including charges related to a broad scope of paraphernalia, from pot pipe possession to possession of syringes associated with heroin use:
- Rolling papers
- Crack pipes
At Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law, we investigate all laws and facts to help you build a successful defense. We look at the procedures followed by law enforcement to see if your rights were violated at any point. Depending on how the drug paraphernalia was found, you may have a defense to your charge.
