Phoenix Drug Paraphernalia Lawyer

Drug paraphernalia covers a wide range of items that are used to manufacture, grow, inhale, inject, and test drugs. Any person who is found guilty of violating A.R.S. 13-3415 section A is guilty of a class 6 felony. All drug paraphernalia must be forfeited by the owner following a conviction.

The court uses a number of methods to determine whether an object is drug paraphernalia or not. Some of these methods include:

  1. Statements from the owner pertaining to the objects use.
  2. Prior convictions relating to drug offenses.
  3. The proximity of the object to drugs.
  4. The existence of any residue of drugs on the object.

Arizona Revised Statutes provides a general list of objects that are generally considered drug paraphernalia. Some of the more common items on this list include:

  1. Bongs
  2. Water Pipes
  3. Smoking and Carburetion Masks
  4. Pipes made out of any material
  5. Other objects or kits used for creating or using drugs.

More often than not, a person who is caught with drug paraphernalia is also caught with a drug of some kind. A first time offender will spend between 3 and 18 months in jail if convicted.
