What Is PDP?

PDP is short form for Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  It is often charged in connection with possession of an illegal drug - heroin, cocaine or marijuana.  While the courts very often only issue a fine in connection with a PDP charge, n Kentucky the charge is a Class A misdemeanor and is punishable by up to 12 months in jail and up to $500 fine. KRS 218A.500 defines the unlawful practices and penalties associated with drug paraphernalia.  KRS 218A.510 outlines the factors for a court to consider when evaluating whether an item is that of drug paraphernalia.  It is not common for a PDP charge to be made when there are no drugs found. That said, it is increasing in criminal charge when the police often find hypodermic needles near or on a drug user and the drug is already been ingested.  This is very common in heroin cases.  In most cases, some amoutn of the drug can be taken as evidence. Any testable amount is sufficient for a conviction of possession of drugs, which may be a Felony charge. If you have been charged with possession of drugs or PDP, you need an attorney.  Even marijuana can be used against you in future cases as well as by employers.  Heroin, cocaine and many prescription drugs can lead to felony convictions.
