Drug Paraphernalia

In Tennessee, if you are charged with a drug offense of any kind there is a certain stigma that goes along with it. That is why it is extremely important to hire experienced and skilled lawyers to fight for you. Not just show up in court, but make sure that a Drug Paraphernalia charge is not only dismissed, but expunged and never to be heard of again. Some people think that a charge for a pipe, bong, vial, or grow lights can be easily handled and they appear on their own without the assistance of an attorney. This is not the case! A conviction for Drug Paraphernalia can have the same impact on your ability in the future to get into school or get a job as a Drug Possession case.

  1. That the Defendant used, possessed with intent to use, drug paraphernalia to plant, cultivate, grow, harvest, manufacture, convert, produce, process, test, analyze, store, contain, conceal, inject, ingest, inhale, or otherwise introduce into the human body a controlled substance; and
  2. The Defendant acted intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly.

If you are convicted of Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (Tennessee Code Annotated 39-17-425) faces a Class A Misdemeanor, up to 11/29 days in jail, fines, costs, and possibly drug class or community service.


Even in misdemeanor cases, clients deserve the best representation. Don’t go to court without someone by your side. Contact Mark or Joseph and reasonable rates for misdemeanor charges like Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Client Reviews
Relief! Mark Freeman is the best lawyer I have ever had. He took care of my Criminal Case in one day. Answered all phone calls and returned them all as well. He didn't hesitate to answer any of my questions. I am very thankful he had my case dropped! Not many lawyers can do that. I highly recommend him. He treats you as more so family than a client. If I ever have another case Mark Freeman will be my lawyer. Peter P.
Joey: Just wanted you to know how appreciative I am to be represented by such an outstanding attorney. You did an awesome job. Thank you for your help and support throughout. I have NEVER gotten so much for my money with any other attorney before. I'm looking forward to referring you as much as possible in the future. Thanks again buddy. Charles G.
I reached out to the firm for assistance in a landlord/tenant matter. Freeman & Fuson was quick to call me back, gathered all the details on a brief phone call and was ready to act as early as the next morning. They saved me time/money and frustration. His follow through until the matter was resolved was excellent. Michael S.
Mr Fuson was my attorney for multiple cases and what I can say I most appreciated was how simple he made it to communicate. This left me never ill at ease with where things stood. He is knowledgeable and certainly experienced in Williamson County. There really is nothing more I can say except hire him!! Jennifer
