I got arrested for drug paraphernalia in Alabama. What can I do?
According to Alabama Code Title 13A. Criminal Code § 13A-12-260 there is a long list of the different types of Drug paraphernalia. Most commonly, drug paraphernalia would be classified as pipes, grinders, roach clips, and scales. Many of these items can be purchased legally. However if used for illegal purposes, you can be charged with a drug paraphernalia offense.
Normally, these charges are classified as a Class A misdemeanor. However, depending on the circumstances, the charges could be upgraded to a Class B or Class C Felony charges.
