According to the Michigan Public Health Code, drug paraphernalia can be any piece of equipment, product, material, or combination of the three which is specifically designed for planting, cultivation, harvesting, manufacturing, compounding, converting, producing, preparing, testing, packaging, storing, concealing, injecting, or inhaling illegal drugs. This includes needles, pipes, bongs, or other inhaling devices, materials for making meth, crack cocaine, or other illegal narcotics, scales for measuring drug quantities, heat lamps, and more. Essentially, possession of any item that allows you to ingest, grow, make, or distribute cocaine, marijuana, heroin, methamphetamines, or any other illegal drug is defined as drug paraphernalia. Possession of these items is prohibited and can result in criminal penalties.

Our lawyers have extensive experience fighting drug crime charges and will not rest until you achieve the best possible result in your criminal case.
Although there is no state law prohibiting the possession of drug paraphernalia in Michigan, local ordinances have established that a misdemeanor conviction can be handed out for possession of any drug related item. If convicted of possessing a restricted item, you could face a fine of up to $500, and up to 93 days in jail. Unlike regular drug charges, Michigan 7411 sentencing is not an option in these cases and a misdemeanor conviction will result in a criminal record.
Sale of drug paraphernalia is a more serious charge that can result in fines of as much as $5000 along with a 93 day jail sentence, according to the Michigan Public Health Code. Contact Scott Grabel and our drug crime defense team to protect against possession or sale charges in any of Michigan’s 83 counties.
