What is not considered drug paraphernalia

Items that are primarily used for other legal means are not automatically considered drug paraphernalia. These items include hypodermic syringes, needles and other objects used for medical purposes. Similarly, items such as pipes, papers and accessories, that are designed for use or primarily intended for use with tobacco products are not automatically considered “drug paraphernalia.” A court will consider the subjective motive or intended use of these items when determining whether or not the items are in violation of Wisconsin Statute.

Delivery of Drug Paraphernalia to a Minor

Delivering drug paraphernalia to a minor will result in more significant penalties. For example, it is a Class A misdemeanor if you are over the age of 17 and deliver paraphernalia to some one who is a minor and within three years of your age.
