What is Drug Paraphernalia?

Ohio law includes a laundry list of items that may be considered drug "paraphernalia". This may include items that are used to ingest, process, cultivate or manufacture controlled substances. Following are some of the items that may be considered drug paraphernalia:

  • Hypodermic syringes or needles
  • Bongs or pipes
  • Equipment used to cultivate marijuana
  • Equipment used to manufacture drugs
  • Chemicals used to manufacture drugs
  • Drug testing equipment
  • Containers or devices used to store or hide drugs
  • Balloons, bags, envelopes or other items used to package small quantities of a drug
  • Separation device or sifter used to clean or refine marijuana
  • Measuring scales
  • Substance used to dilute or "cut" controlled substances

To determine whether a certain item may be considered drug paraphernalia, law enforcement will gather evidence in regard to the object's proximity to illegal narcotics, residue of controlled substances on the object, the defendant's statements about the object's use, and other factors that may shed light on the purpose or intent of the object.

Because circumstantial evidence may play a big part in drug paraphernalia charges, there is the chance that your attorney will be able to become involved early on to conduct negotiations with the prosecution that will result in your charges being dropped based on insufficient evidence. To find out possible strategies that may apply in your case, contact a Columbus drug paraphernalia attorney at Koffel Law Firm today.
