Michigan Possession of Drug Paraphernalia Laws
According to Michigan drug laws contained in the Public Health Code, it is illegal to possess or sell any paraphernalia which may be used to plant, grow, harvest, make, convert, process, prepare, test, store, conceal, ingest, or otherwise introduce a drug into the body. Drug paraphernalia possession laws cover just about anything associated with drug use, including:
- Testing Equipment
- Scales or Balances
- Isomerization Devices
- Diluents or Adulterants
- Pipes, Bongs, or other Ingestion Devices
- Kits for Manufacturing or Cultivating Drugs
- Razors, Mirrors, and Other Cocaine-related Paraphernalia
