Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia in Williamson County, Tennessee

Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia is a Class A Misdemeanor in Tennessee which is often accompanied by other similar misdemeanor offenses such as Simple Possession of a Controlled substance like Marijuana, Cocaine or Prescription Pills. Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia can be punished by up to 11 months and 29 days in jail and fine up to $2,500 and a minimum fine of $150 for your first offense. Drug Paraphernalia are items used by a person engaged in the use, sale or delivery of a Controlled Substance. This may include, but is not limited to: rolling papers, cigars, cutting devices, pipes, dug outs, and other devices commonly used to smoke marijuana. Also, paraphernalia may include sandwich baggies, scales, jewelry bags, drug ledgers and other items consistent with use for the Sale of Drugs and Narcotics such as Marijuana and Cocaine. Further, storage devices intended for the concealment of illegal drugs may be defined as Unlawful Drug Paraphernalia as well, and can often be disguised as soft drink containers, shaving cream cans, cleaning products or other such items one may expect to find in luggage or located in a vehicle.
