Denton Drug Paraphernalia Lawyers

Drug Paraphernalia Charge Texas

To deter drug crimes, Texas has a law that makes it illegal for a person to possess or deliver any item that is used in conjunction with controlled substances. Depending on the nature of the incident, having or providing drug paraphernalia can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, and a conviction can result in incarceration and/or fines. Because such consequences can have lasting effects, if you’ve been charged with an offense, it’s essential that you seek the help of a skilled attorney.

Our Denton drug paraphernalia lawyers will dedicate their time and energy to building a solid defense on your behalf.

What Is Drug Paraphernalia?

Drug paraphernalia is any item or equipment that can be used to cultivate, make, package, transport, or ingest controlled substances.

Such objects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Bowls
  • Rolling papers
  • Bongs
  • Baggies
  • Scales
  • Spoons
  • Syringes

Obviously, most of these items can have other purposes outside of drug use. Thus, when law enforcement officials are investigating a case, they look at the totality of the circumstances to determine whether or not the object is drug paraphernalia. However, that does not mean their conclusions are 100% correct, and you may find yourself accused of an offense even if the tools you had were not used or intended to be used in conjunction with drugs. That is why it’s important to have a lawyer on your side who can assess your situation and challenge the accusations.

Texas Drug Paraphernalia Penalties

Texas enumerates three types of conduct that are considered offenses under the drug paraphernalia law. The conviction penalties depend on the act you allegedly committed.

The offenses and their associated punishments include:

  • Possession of drug paraphernalia Texas: It is an offense to knowingly or intentionally use or have with the intent to use drug paraphernalia. This is a Class C misdemeanor, which carries a fine of up to $500.
  • Delivering drug paraphernalia Texas: This occurs when someone gives drug paraphernalia to another person to commit a controlled substance offense. It is a Class A misdemeanor penalized by up to 1 year in jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000.
  • Delivering drug paraphernalia to a minor Texas: Giving drug paraphernalia to a person under 18 years of age to commit a drug offense is a state jail felony. A conviction can lead to incarceration for up to 2 years and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
