Las Vegas Drug Paraphernalia Attorney
What Is Drug Paraphernalia?
A drug paraphernalia charge is usually a misdemeanor offense in Nevada
and is often accompanied by a drug possession charge. Paraphernalia is
"any object or product that helps a person use illegal drugs."
This could range from scales used to weigh drugs and cocaine spoons to
types of pipes and roach clips.
The court can determine if an object was drug paraphernalia based on factors
such as the statements of the accused person, the proximity of the object
to controlled substances, drug residue on the object and expert testimony.
