Drug Paraphernalia Charges in Texas
“Drug paraphernalia” is a term that the law uses to define items that are used to cultivate, manufacture, produce, process, test, package, store or conceal a controlled substance. Paraphernalia does not just refer to a bowl or pipe used to smoke marijuana anymore.
It can include the following items:
- Kits sold to be used to plant or harvest marijuana
- Chemical compounds used to manufacture, convert or prepare a controlled substance such as methamphetamines
- Isomer devices which can increase the potency of a plant
- Testing equipment which can analyze the strength or purity of a controlled substance such as cocaine
- Scales used to weigh or measure drugs
- Other items used to package or ingest drugs
Understanding “Head Shops” & Drug Paraphernalia Sales
The efforts of law enforcement in prosecuting paraphernalia charges have now been aimed to those who possess these products and those who sell these products either in “head shops” or on the internet. Even the sale of a large amount of balloons can be considered a drug paraphernalia sale if supported by some other evidence.
If you are under investigation or have been approached by law enforcement officials concerning your sale of suspected drug paraphernalia, please take the time to consult with an experienced San Antonio criminal defense attorney. If you speak to federal agents without an attorney, you could be sealing your fate, handing them testimonial evidence that could be used to convict you when the feds believe they have enough evidence.
