Dallas Drug Paraphernalia Lawyers

Drug laws in Texas are very harsh, which means that you do not have to be in actual possession of an illegal substance in order to be arrested for a drug crime. The simple possession of drug-related paraphernalia is reason enough to be taken into police custody. Due to the fact that many everyday items can count as drug-related accoutrements, it is no surprise that possession of drug paraphernalia is a common wrongful charge. However, with experienced representation on your side, it can easily be fought.

Drug paraphernalia charges alone can cost you up to $500 in fines. When combined with other drug-related charges, the penalties can be even more severe. Fortunately, there are ways to fight and protect your rights during this difficult situation. The qualified Dallas drug paraphernalia attorneys at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter have a reputation of fighting aggressively for their clients’ rights. Contact our offices today at 214-845-7007 for your consultation.

Common Types of Drug Paraphernalia

The state of Texas considers the following items to be illegal drug paraphernalia:

  • Items used for drug manufacturing
  • Drug packaging materials
  • Devices that aid in the use of drugs (bongs, pipes, etc.)

Some objects considered to be drug paraphernalia even include common household items, including:

  • Scales
  • Bowls
  • Envelopes
  • Plastic bags

However, it may be difficult for the prosecution to argue that these household items were involved with illegal drug possession. An experienced criminal defense team can also help show that these devices are normal household products and do not have to be considered drug paraphernalia.
