Under Michigan Public Health Code legislation, it is illegal to possess drug paraphernalia, and criminal penalties can result as a standalone charge or in addition to other drug crime charges if a violation of these laws occurs.
So what exactly is included as prohibited drug paraphernalia? The list is extensive, but a few items listed as unlawful drug paraphernalia in Southfield include:
While these items are listed as illegal, it is lawful to use many of these items for other purposes (for example, mirrors are obviously not expressly prohibited in all situations), and most of these items can be lawfully sold in Southfield and statewide. This makes many drug paraphernalia cases extremely subjective, and usually these charges will result in connection with drug possession or the discovery of drug residue. Working with a lawyer may be the difference between a drug paraphernalia conviction and continuing a normal life, so act fast to get in touch with a qualified representative.
If convicted of possessing prohibited drug paraphernalia, you could face a misdemeanor conviction, which could result in up to 90 days behind bars and a $5,000 fine. These penalties will result in addition to any other drug crime charges you may be facing. Always work with an attorney early on in your case and determine the best course of action as you seek to protect your freedom and your future.
