to allow you to consume them. In an attempt to help curb the spread of
these substances, the state of Texas has also outlawed the possession
of these devices, called drug paraphernalia. While possession of these
objects is not punished as severely as other
drug crime charges, being convicted of possession of drug paraphernalia can still
land you some serious penalties.

Common Drug Paraphernalia
Lots of things can be considered to be drug paraphernalia, but many of
them are also everyday household items. Thus, the onus then goes on the
prosecutor to prove that your intent in possessing these objects was for
drug consumption or distribution in order to obtain a guilty verdict.
Some common drug paraphernalia can include:
- Rolling papers
- Small measuring spoons
- Smoking pipes or bongs
- Roach clips
- Small mirrors
- Razor blades
As you can see, none of these things are illegal for possession by the
common consumer, but possessing them with the proven intent of drug consumption
or selling them for drug consumption is illegal. Generally, these are
misdemeanor charges, but selling them to a minor or doing so on school
property is considered a felony, making for much more serious charges.
