Thanks for your help.

uso de la parafernalia relacionada con las drogas
Explanation:
Hola Raul,

yo lo traduciría así:

Estar bajo la influencia de las drogas y/o posesión o uso de la parafernalia relacionada con las mismas.

According to Bea's outstanding explanation, parafernalia refers to the drugs themselves and also to the elements necessary to use them. So, disagreeing with Flavio, I think you should use the word parafernalia. Because it does not only refer to the drugs themselves.

Hope this helps! :-)

parafernalia relacionada con las drogas [o, narcóticos]


Explanation:
Hola Raúl!
Esta palabrota se traduce igual al español..y es un tanto ambigua ya que abarca muchas cosas. Sin embargo y en resumidas cuentas, se refiere a los artículos diversos utilizados o necesarios para XX actividad.

Sugeriría algo así como:
"estar bajo la influencia de narcóticos [o, drogas] y/o en posesión y haciendo uso de parafernalia relacionada con los [o, las] mismos/as".

Espero esto te ayude:-)

artículos relacionados


Explanation:
Coincido con los que opinan que no debería aparecer semejante palabro, por excesivo en este contexto. Yo me inclino más bien por: artículos, objetos, efectos, útiles... relacionados con ellas.
Pero es cuestión de gustos.
Good luck.
