An experienced criminal defense attorney will know how to examine all the circumstances surrounding your case to secure the most favorable result.

Section 11364 of the California Health and Safety Code governs the possession of drug paraphernalia in California, which is a serious crime. “Drug paraphernalia” is broadly defined as all equipment, products, or materials of any kind which are intended for use in planting, cultivating, growing, manufacturing, compounding, producing, processing, or otherwise introducing a controlled substance into the human body.

There are many different penalties for possession of drug paraphernalia. Some charges can result in a misdemeanor conviction and fine to one thousand dollars ($1,000), while others may also result in the loss of your business license.

An experienced Southern California drug paraphernalia possession attorney can help you defend the charges. The most common defense for a possession of drug paraphernalia charge is authorized possession for personal use. A person is allowed to possess paraphernalia if it has been prescribed by a licensed physician. Also, possession of instruments for smoking marijuana, without more, is not a crime in California.
