Possession of Marijuana Paraphernalia

Under Florida Statute § 893.145, drug paraphernalia is defined as “all equipment, products, and materials of any kind which are used, intended for use, or designed for use in planting, propagating, cultivating, growing, harvesting, manufacturing, compounding, converting, producing, processing, preparing, testing, analyzing, packaging, repackaging, storing, containing, concealing, transporting, injecting, ingesting, inhaling, or otherwise introducing into the human body” any controlled substance.

While this is often a misdemeanor offense, individuals who are charged with marijuana paraphernalia possession typically face additional related offenses that increase the severity of the penalties. Furthermore, Florida Statutes §§  932.701-932.706, otherwise known as the “Florida Contraband Forfeiture Act,” allows law enforcement to seize assets such as money, automobiles, and property through civil forfeiture if they believe the contraband was used in connection to a felony drug crime.
