Possession Of Drug Paraphernalia In Grand Rapids And Kalamazoo
If you have been arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, you may think it is no big deal since you did not have any drugs. You would be wrong. The penalties for possession of drug paraphernalia can include jail time, fines and the negative consequences that come with having a drug-related conviction on your record.
At Willis Law, our attorneys provide skilled representation to people facing drug paraphernalia charges in Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids and throughout West Michigan. We will fight for your rights and guide you to the best possible outcome in your case.
What Is Considered To Be 'Drug Paraphernalia?'
Under Michigan law, drug paraphernalia includes any material, equipment, product or combination that is designed specifically for the cultivation, growing, planting, compounding, processing, packaging, testing, storing, concealing, harvesting, analyzing, inhaling, injecting or ingesting of drugs. This definition would include objects such as:
- Rolling paper
- Razor blades
- Heat lamps
If you are charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, our Kalamazoo drug crime lawyers will fight for the best possible outcome. This may include demonstrating that your possession of an item was not for drug-related purposes. For example, someone could have a heat lamp in his or her basement for nurturing a plant in preparation for a spring planting or could be in possession of a razor blade for cosmetic or home improvement purposes.
If we cannot get the charges dismissed, we will pursue the best available option for minimizing your exposure to penalties such as fines and jail time, whether that means pleading guilty to a lesser offense, entering a diversion program or going to trial.
