What Is Drug Paraphernalia?
Drug paraphernalia refers to products and materials sold online and in retail tobacco/head shops used to make, consume or conceal drugs. They include pipes, roach clips, syringes, scales, bongs, vials, grow lights, hydroponics kits and products promoted to cleanse the body of drugs. However, everyday items such as mirrors, razor blades, bent spoons, plastic baggies and rolled-up currency can fall under paraphernalia laws.
