    Question: What is the penalty for a juvenile offender in possession of drug paraphernalia? What classification is this crime?

    Answer: Arizona law (ARS §13-3415) states that possession or sale of drug paraphernalia is a class 6 felony.

    Drug Paraphernalia is defined as: all equipment, products and materials of any kind which are used, intended for use or designed for use in planting, propagating, cultivating, growing, harvesting, manufacturing, compounding, converting, producing, processing, preparing, testing, analyzing, packaging, repackaging, storing, containing, concealing, injecting, ingesting, inhaling or otherwise introducing into the human body an illegal drug.

    So, upon conviction of this crime, the Judge could impose a prison sentence for an individual to:

    • a minimum of 6 months,
    • a maximum of 1.5 years
    • Fine not to exceed $150,000.
