Penalties for Possession of Paraphernalia

While the penalties for a first offense of this sort might not seem very serious, it is worth your while to hire a lawyer who can work to get your charges reduced or dismissed. In the event that you are charged a subsequent time, you will face significantly more serious penalties.

If this is your first offense, it is considered a misdemeanor and carries the following penalties:

  • Maximum of 1 year in jail
  • Fines of up to $1,000

If this is your second or subsequent offense, the penalties grow more severe:

  • Fines of up to $10,000
  • 3-year suspension of your driver’s license

What is Considered Drug Paraphernalia?

Drug paraphernalia takes many forms, but it is considered by the State of Oklahoma as anything that is used to introduce the body to an illegal substance.

The following are some examples of illegal paraphernalia:

  • Cocaine vials or spoons
  • Roach clips
  • Ingredients used in cutting a controlled dangerous substance (CDS)
  • Kits used for cultivating marijuana
  • Kits used for manufacturing a CDS
  • Water, glass, or ice pipes (and more)
  • Bongs
  • Scales used for weighing a CDS

In fact, even if a legal item (such as an item marketed as an incense burner) is found with drug residue or near illegal drugs, you could still face charges of drug paraphernalia.
