Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Accused of possessing drug paraphernalia? Michael L. Fell will help you resolve your case as favorably as possible.
In some ways, being accused of having drug paraphernalia such as a pipe or a needle is almost as serious as being accused of possessing the drugs that could be smoked or injected using these items. Both drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia are misdemeanor charges. The main difference is that drug paraphernalia charge carries a bit less jail time.
