If you are pulled over and they search you or your car, they find nothing but rolling papers, then how can you be charged for drug paraphernalia. What if you use them for tobacco but you ran out of tobacco and you are left only with the rolling papers. Does it make a difference if you are high at the time; yet you only have rolling papers at the time. When and when not, can you be charged for drug paraphernalia for only having rolling papers. I understand if you have any illegal substances then it becomes drug paraphernalia, but if you use them for tobacco and then you ran, but still have the papers, how is that a crime. when does it become a crime. Writing a paper, be specific please.
