The possession of methamphetamine is covered by Section 11377 HSC of the California Health and Safety Code, which prohibits the possession of methamphetamine, GHB, ketamine and certain other anabolic steroids. California Health and Safety Code 11377 (a) HS makes simple possession of methamphetamine a misdemeanor offense. Simple or direct possession of methamphetamine under California law is considered a misdemeanor under the sentence reductions in Proposition 47.The prosecutor in your case will make this determination based on a variety of factors, including your criminal record and the facts of your case. The undersecretary of health points out that methamphetamine is an especially deadly drug because no medication reverses an overdose of methamphetamine.
We also know details about the manufacture, distribution and abuse of methamphetamine, and the trends in public officials investigating, prosecuting and condemning methamphetamine-related crimes. You can also be guilty of violating HS 11379 without personally manipulating any methamphetamine, provided that you somehow have control over methamphetamine. However, despite public education about these risks of methamphetamine abuse, methamphetamine remains a popular recreational drug.
