Drug Paraphernalia in Olathe

Drug Crimes for Possession or Sale of Paraphernalia

When considering drug crimes, many people simply assume it relates strictly to the drugs themselves, whether they are marijuana or methamphetamines. There are, however, many intricate drug laws that branch out much further than that. For example, in Kansas recently there has been a focus on the possession and sale of drug paraphernalia and other drug accessories. The state has recognized drug paraphernalia to be such items as glass/metal pipes, bongs, water pipes, scales, and other similar articles.

If you are found to be selling drug paraphernalia, with the intention of the item to be used to either consume or ingest illegal drugs, you can face severe penalties such as extended time incarcerated, and steep monetary fines. The severity of the punishment will depend on many different factors in the individual case, including things such as place sold, amount sold, and age of the person sold to. On the other hand, if you are found to be in possession of marijuana paraphernalia for personal use, you will face a misdemeanor crime that can carry fives up to $2,500 and a year imprisoned.
