Q) Is possession of drug paraphernalia a felony offense?
A) Similarly to the possession of drugs, the possession of drug paraphernalia can be classified as either an indictable crime or a disorderly persons offense. The use or possession with the intent to use drug paraphernalia is a disorderly persons offense, while the distribution, dispensement or possession of drug paraphernalia with the intent to distribute or dispense is a crime. “Drug paraphernalia” includes all equipment, products and materials of any kind which are used or intended for use in planting, propagating, cultivating, growing, harvesting, manufacturing, compounding, converting, producing, processing, preparing, testing, analyzing, packaging, repackaging, storing, containing, concealing, ingesting, inhaling, or otherwise introducing into the human body a controlled dangerous substance.
