Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (PDP) is commonly charged in association with possession of drugs, but the two charges are not always brought together. Paraphernalia can range from pipes, papers to cigars. Paraphernalia is anything that is intended to use with an illegal substance. Many people get in trouble with paraphernalia in similar circumstances as they would with routine drug arrests, because of this there are many different avenues to try and suppress the evidence. Did the officer have probable cause to search? To delay the stop? These are just a couple of common questions that need to be examined in many drug cases. While possession of drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor, it is more serious then possession of some drugs, like marijuana.
