What Is Drug Paraphernalia?

Drug paraphernalia refers to any items that are used in the preparation, packaging, storing, or consumption of drugs. This can include a wide range of items, including those that are used to smoke or inject drugs, as well as those that are used to grow or manufacture drugs.

Examples of drug paraphernalia include:

  • Water pipes
  • Bongs
  • Marijuana pipes
  • Roach clips
  • Syringes
  • Plastic baggies
  • Scales
  • Grinders
  • Grow lights
  • Chemical compounds
  • And more

It is important to note that drug paraphernalia does not have to be found with an illegal substance for you to be charged with a crime. If you are found to be in possession of an item that is commonly used to consume drugs, you can be charged with a crime.

What Are the Penalties for Drug Paraphernalia Charges?

Drug paraphernalia charges are typically classified as a Class A misdemeanor in Tennessee. If you are convicted, you could face up to 11 months and 29 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,500. In addition, a conviction will remain on your criminal record, which can make it difficult to find employment, secure housing, or get approved for a loan.

In some cases, you may be charged with a felony if you are found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia. This is more likely if you have prior drug convictions on your record or if you are found to be in possession of a large quantity of drug paraphernalia.

Finally, if you are charged with drug possession and are found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia, you could face additional penalties. For example, if you are found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia with the intent to sell or distribute, you could be charged with a felony offense and face years or even decades behind bars.
