Possession of a Controlled Substance

Under California Health and Safety Code section 11350 possession of a “controlled substance” without a valid prescription can be punishable by imprisonment in state prison. California Health and Safety Code section 11351 prohibits the possession of a controlled substance for the purposes of sale, which is a felony offense and can result in a two, three, or four year jail term.

Generally, a controlled substance is:

  • Hydrocodone;
  • PCP;
  • Cocaine;
  • Heroin;
  • Morphine:
  • Peyote;
  • Opiates and opiate derivatives; and
  • Gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB).

At Gupta & Trujillo, we will protect and exercise your rights under Proposition 36. If you are elgible, we will assist first-time and second- time non-violent, simple possession of a controlled substance offenders in demanding treatment programs instead of incarceration. We may also help you avoid a conviction all together by making a preguilty plea on your behalf through PC 1000. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you stay out of jail.
