Is it a Crime to Sell or Own a Pipe or Other Drug Paraphernalia?
In some states it is also illegal to advertise or otherwise promote the sale of drug paraphernalia. Most states also have drug laws aimed at protecting youth, which may affect other paraphernalia laws.
What Are the Penalties for Drug Paraphernalia Crimes?
In most cases, possession of drug paraphernalia is considered a misdemeanor. Offenders are often fined and a criminal charge may be put on their permanent record. In some states an offender may be briefly imprisoned. The sale of drug paraphernalia carries stiffer penalties, with fines of up to $5000 and prison sentences of up to two years.
However, the penalties for drug paraphernalia crimes may be enhanced if the crime is committed on the grounds of a public school or park. Penalties may also be enhanced if the offender was over eighteen years of age and provided a juvenile under the age of eighteen with drug paraphernalia.
