Possession of drug paraphernalia is a first degree misdemeanor in Florida. That means if you are arrested for possession of paraphernalia in Jacksonville, you are facing up to a year in jail.
Drug paraphernalia includes all equipment and materials which are used or intended for use in planting, harvesting, preparing, packaging, ingesting, or otherwise getting illegal drugs into your body. Examples of paraphernalia are:
1. Pot Growing Kits
3. Plastic Baggies
5. Bowls and Spoons
Some of these items are not in and of themselves illegal. It is the way they are used. Police make the determination of how they are used when they arrest you. It is up to the state attorney to prove that their determination was correct. If you have been arrested for possessing paraphernalia in Jacksonville, Clay County, or Nassau County, contact a Jacksonville Drug Law Firm to discuss your case.
