Possession of items such as pipes, rolling paper, clips or even baggies can result in serious drug paraphernalia charges in Maryland. Possession of drug paraphernalia is a misdemeanor — a crime that will result in a criminal record if you are convicted. Drug paraphernalia can be anything that is intended or designed to:
- Plant, harvest or manufacture drugs
- Process or test drugs
- Package, store or conceal drugs
- Ingest, inject or inhale drugs
Conviction on a first drug paraphernalia offense carries a fine of up to $500. The consequences/penalties for subsequent convictions are far more serious: a fine of up to $2,000 and a prison sentence of up to two years.
Given the seriousness of a second conviction, it’s important to keep a first-time drug offense off your record.
