use, or possess any sort of paraphernalia that is related to a marijuana
drug crime. Simply having a marijuana pipe in your home could hit you

will only escalate depending on what other charges are tied to your case.
If you have been arrested for paraphernalia possession, you must take
the matter seriously and seek legal counsel as soon as you can.
Additional Consequences for Marijuana Crimes
Tennessee State is fairy unique in the way that it imposes a “stamp
tax” on marijuana. For each gram that is transported, purchased,
or sold, the state may collect $3.50 from the perpetrator. As this is
an administrative fee and not a criminal fine, there is often no way to
avoid paying this amount, even if you are not found guilty of your marijuana crime.

your educational and career opportunities. Through thorough defense strategies,
