What is considered “drug paraphernalia”?
California law prohibits drug paraphernalia of any kind. The law states that the possession of paraphernalia such as an opium pipe, contrivance, or instrument used for the unlawful injection or smoking of a controlled substance is strictly prohibited. Things like hypodermic needles, syringes, pipes, or even spoons can be considered paraphernalia.
The prosecution in a paraphernalia case will need to prove all three of the following in order to secure a conviction:
- That you had the right to control drug paraphernalia
- That you had knowledge of the paraphernalia’s presence
- That you had knowledge the paraphernalia was a drug or drug related
