There is some discretion on the part of law enforcement officers in determining if something is considered drug paraphernalia.

When a drug possession lawyer in Bloomington IL from our firm takes a case, one of the things that may be considered is the nature of the so-called drug paraphernalia. It’s very possible that the evidence seized from your possession had nothing to do with illegal drugs.
Alternately, perhaps it was not your drug paraphernalia and you were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Talk to a Bloomington IL drug possession lawyer about the details of your case.

Laws Regarding the Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Drug laws can vary from one jurisdiction to the next. In fact, you may reside in one jurisdiction but were arrested in another jurisdiction, or you traveled between two jurisdictions. A drug possession lawyer from our firm has a thorough understanding of the laws in Bloomington IL and the surrounding areas.

Exercise Your Right to Remain Silent
The legal determination of what constitutes drug paraphernalia depends in large part on the intent of the item’s owner. For example, a spoon in one’s car may have been left over from a meal eaten in the vehicle, or it could have been used as drug paraphernalia. Determining intent is often dependent on questions asked by a law enforcement officer or on the information volunteered by the individual during questioning by law enforcement. You have the right to remain silent even before you are charged with a crime. You will likely be best served by not answering questions other than providing your identity. At your first opportunity, call a Bloomington IL drug possession lawyer who can immediately begin protecting your rights.
