NORTH CAROLINA DRUG CRIMES ATTORNEY
A cut-off straw. A beer can made into a bong. Blenders. Bowls. Spoons. Anything used to facilitate or designed to facilitate use, transfer or sale of illegal drugs is considered drug paraphernalia and can be charged as a Class 1 misdemeanor. In fact, possession of drug paraphernalia is a more serious crime than possession of a small amount of marijuana.
Do not simply plead guilty. Do not underestimate the seriousness of these charges. You could face up to six months in jail and large fines. Contact an experienced Raleigh drug paraphernalia attorney as soon as possible to begin fighting the allegations.

A POWERFUL DEFENSE AGAINST DRUG PARAPHERNALIA CHARGES
Whether you were caught using a marijuana pipe or bong or whether the police found rolling papers, hypodermic needles or digital scales in your home or car, we can help you build a strong defense. We will challenge search and seizure: Did the officers who found the evidence need a search warrant? Did they have reason to believe that the objects they seized were used with drugs? Did they find any drug residue? Was your arrest proper?
If the police or prosecution made a mistake, we may be able to dismiss your charges. However, we are also skilled negotiators who can negotiate a plea bargain to reduce your sentence if your charges cannot be dropped.
We offer a hands-on approach and convenient appointments for our criminal defense clients. Contact us today to learn more about our Raleigh drug paraphernalia attorney’s defense experience in a free initial consultation.
