Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

Can I Be Arrested in Texas for Having Marijuana Paraphernalia?

Compared to some other states around the country, Texas is known for having relatively harsh laws regulating the use of marijuana. However, some people may not be aware that possession of the tools or items that are frequently used to smoke marijuana is also a crime.

Possession of drug paraphernalia is a separate charge that can also permanently stain your criminal record. If you’re facing these charges, a Fort Worth drug crime lawyer can help. Read on if you’re wondering about the consequences of being arrested with marijuana paraphernalia.

The Impact of a Marijuana Paraphernalia Arrest

In short—yes, you can be arrested for having marijuana paraphernalia on your person. But what is paraphernalia? According to Texas law, paraphernalia may include items with legitimate legal purposes that are used to consume illegal drugs. In the case of marijuana, some common forms of paraphernalia include:

  • Water pipes, or bongs
  • Bowls
  • Grinders
  • One-hitters (i.e., tiny glass pipes, often resembling cigarettes, that are used to smoke small amounts)
  • Vaporizers

Although many of these items may be purchased at legal stores, the act of using them to consume an illicit substance is what makes them paraphernalia. Specifically, police can point to the presence of resin, leaves, or other residual material on the paraphernalia to show that they have been used for this purpose.

Defendants in Texas can face either a fine of $500 in the case of simple possession, or possible incarceration of up to a year if convicted of the greater misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia, or intent to sell such paraphernalia.
