Reno Drug Crimes Lawyer

Fight Back Against Drug Paraphernalia Charges

Nevada has some of the strictest drug crime laws in the entire country, and the same level of intolerance extends beyond the substances themselves to include devices used to consume them. These devices, known as “drug paraphernalia,” are illegal to possess, distribute, or sell in the state. While there are certain devices that are almost exclusively considered drug paraphernalia, the law states that anything used to consume, store, or manufacture drugs can potentially land you in hot water.

At the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Stover, Attorney Stover has substantial experience as a Reno drug crimes attorney defending those who are facing drug crime charges from the potentially devastating penalties levied by the Nevada justice system.

Is it Paraphernalia?

One of the key points in drug paraphernalia cases is proving that the object in question was used for a drug-related activity. Many of these items are common in normal households, so proving that they were used for drug activities can be tricky.

  • Common items that can be considered drug paraphernalia include:
  • Syringes
  • Water pipes
  • Glass tobacco pipes
  • Joint papers
  • Small measuring spoons
  • Small scales
  • Crushing devices
  • Roach clips

If you are found in possession of or advertising drug paraphernalia, you could face misdemeanor charges, which mean you may spend up to six months in jail and are fined up to $1,000. However, if you sell or intend to sell paraphernalia, your charges are upgraded to a category E felony, meaning you may face between one and four years in jail and a fine up to $5,000. Selling to someone under the age of 18 and at least three years younger upgrades it to a category C felony, increasing the fine to up to $10,000.
