Los Angeles Possession of Materials for Manufacturing Controlled Substances
The United States in general has cracked down on both the possession and production of controlled substances. The reason for this is that these substances tend to have a very negative effect on individuals and their overall behavior in society. What has been particularly surprising is the penalties associated with the possession of materials that have the purpose of producing controlled substances. In order to understand these new regulations, it is essential to understand what the state of California has in effect legally as punishment for possessing a controlled substance.
The statute that governs possession of controlled substances is California Health and Safety Code 11350 HS. This statute prohibits possessing certain controlled substances without a valid prescription. Under California Health and Safety Code 11350 HS, a controlled substance is defined as a chemical or drug whose manufactured, use, and possession are regulated by the United States government under the “Controlled Substances Act.” Under the “Controlled Substances Act,” the United States government includes drugs such as: LSD, heroine, and cocaine. Furthermore, the “Controlled Substances Act” also applies to oxycodone (Oxycontin), codeine, and hydrocodone (Vicodin). What is important to understand about California Health and Safety Code 11350 HS, is that stimulants and marijuana are not applicable to the statute and the possession of methamphetamine and other stimulants are covered by Health and Safety Code 11377.
If you are currently facing charges in connection with either possessing or having the material to possess controlled substances that are covered under the California Health and Safety Code 11350 HS, then it is highly recommended that you obtain legal counsel. The reason for this is that you will have a great potential to have a more successful case with a lower sentence option if you have a lawyer at your side that is experienced in the legal procedures surrounding these charges.
