Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia is a first degree misdemeanor (punishable by not more than a year and jail and $1,000 fine). The first question that many of my clients have is what exactly is considered "drug paraphernalia." According to the Florida Statutes, almost anything and everything is considered drug paraphernalia.
There are many defenses to a charge of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Was the person actually in possession of the item? Was the search legal? Did the item belong to someone else? Exploration of these issues through the discovery process will often lead to motions to suppress the illegally obtained evidence and dismissal of the charges.
