What Is Drug Paraphernalia?

Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, commonly referred to as PDP, is a crime in and of itself in Kentucky.  In Northern Kentucky, the crime of PDP is typically charged in connection with a possession of controlled substance, possession of marijuana or trafficking.  If you have been charged, you need a criminal defense attorney. Pursuant to KRS 218A.500, "Drug paraphernalia" means all equipment, products and materials of any kind which are used, intended for use, or designed for use in planting, propagating, cultivating, growing, harvesting, manufacturing, compounding, converting, producing, processing, preparing, testing, analyzing, packaging, repackaging, storing, containing, concealing, injecting, ingesting, inhaling, or otherwise introducing into the human body a controlled substance in violation of this chapter. Based on this definition, virtually anything may be classified as paraphernalia.  For example, a court may rule that baggies, rolling papers, or roach clips qualify as drug paraphernalia, given the circumstances.  Smoking pipes, hypodermic needles and digital scales are more commonly charged as they are seldom used for other purposes and may be used in trafficking. The crime of PDP is classified as a Class A misdemeanor in Kentucky, punishable by up to $500 fine and 12 months in jail.  If you have been charged with possession of narcotics, marijuana, controlled substance or paraphernalia, you need to hire an attorney in Northern Kentucky.  For consultation, call Michael Bouldin at 859-581-6453 or email at [email protected]
