Possession of drug paraphernalia under California Health and Safety Code Section 11364 is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in county jail. Drug paraphernalia includes a wide number of objects such as pipes, syringes, or anything associated with the use and administration of controlled substances. However, some objects like syringes or other instruments are permitted if you can show that you are authorized to possess them by virtue of a doctor’s prescription.
Whether you will be arrested, if found with drug paraphernalia will depend on the severity and nature of the charge and whether you pose a threat to public safety or a flight risk.
