Orlando Drug Defense Attorney: Possession of Drug Paraphernalia Charges
Possession of Drug Paraphernalia is a first degree misdemeanor but does not carry the same driver’s license suspension as with actual or constructive possession of a controlled substance. In Florida, paraphernalia can be the bag or container that the substance is contained within. Paraphernalia can also be a pipe or bowl as well as other smoking devices or equipment. The most common item is the bag, jar, or storage container in which the substance was found.
This charge is so broad and highly interpretable by different courts. In today’s society sometimes a common household substance like Sudafed or cold medicine could be considered paraphernalia with this broad language in the Statutes.
