If you've been arrested, please contact criminal defense lawyer Michael Anzalone at The Anzalone Law Firm in Nashua, New Hampshire. He can help you put this arrest behind you and get back on your feet as quickly as possible.
What is considered drug paraphernalia? The state's Controlled Drug Act breaks it down this way. Paraphernalia means any equipment or products or materials that are used or intended to use in growing, harvesting, manufacturing, producing, ingesting or introducing into the body any kind of controlled substance.
So that covers quite a bit of territory. This means that aggressive prosecutors can use almost anything against you if you've been arrested on these charges.
Michael Anzalone is a skilled criminal defense attorney who has represented multiple clients who were facing drug-related charges. He can help you as well. But you have to call him as soon as you've been arrested so he can get to work on your case. He also recommends against you talking to authorities because they can use anything you tell them against you when your case goes to court. Don't talk until you have your legal representative by your side.
The state statutes call for up to three years in jail for an arrest on drug paraphernalia charges, plus a fine of up to $2,000. Depending on the circumstances of your cases, the fines and penalties could be much more significant. And there is also the question of whether you case is tried in federal or state court. Again, that is sorted out by the circumstances that led to your arrest in the first place.
And with drug paraphernalia distribution charges, keep in mind that any drugs found with you could also result in additional charges being brought against you.
These charges are defined in RSA 318-B:1.
