Did you just get drug paraphernalia charge? I ask because your question was in the DWI section. Since no dispensaries or cultivation facilities are open in AR and it is not presently legal to cross AR state lines with the reefer, the officer could cite you with drug possession. Paraphernalia is a lesser charge because it does not carry a mandatory 6 month driver license suspension, and it is not considered a drug charge. If you also were charged with DWI or drug possession it is much more important to contest those charges with an attorney due to their consequences. Good luck!
We are expressly not creating an attorney client privilege. While I am a criminal defense attorney, I am just speaking in general about the law in Arkansas and not your specific situation. I am not providing advice, I am just assessing a situation. If you are facing charges then it is serious, and you need to schedule a consultation with myself or another criminal defense attorney.
