DRUG PARAPHRNLIA-REPLICA DEVIC
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Drug Paraphernalia Control Act. Defines drug
paraphernalia to include any item described as drug paraphernalia that
is advertised as a replica or decorative device or display item.
Exempts these items when they are rendered entirely unworkable or
unusable in all of their parts and functions so that they cannot be
used or retrofitted for use as functioning drug paraphernalia devices.
Eliminates exemption for items that are marketed for the processing
or use of tobacco or other lawful substances and have not historically
and customarily been used in connection with these purposes.

Adds reference to:
720 ILCS 600/6 from Ch. 56 1/2, par. 2106

constitute drug paraphernalia. Provides that in determining whether
an item of drug paraphernalia is exempt the direct or circumstantial
evidence of the ratio of sales of the items to the total sales of
tobacco products should be considered. Deletes provision that draws
an inference in favor of the legitimacy of the transaction or item.
