Section 16-255 Possession of drug paraphernalia.


    (a) It shall be unlawful for any person to possess drug paraphernalia. Any person found guilty of violating the provisions of this section shall be deemed guilty of a class A misdemeanor.

    (b) For purposes of this section, "drug paraphernalia" means any object which has been used for or is intended for use in inhaling, injecting, ingesting or otherwise introducing into the human body a controlled substance as defined by the statutes of the State of Missouri. In determining whether an object is drug paraphernalia, a court should consider, in addition to other logically relevant factors, the proximity of the object to a controlled substance and the existence of any residue of a controlled substance found on or in the object.
