HS 11379 Referred to as "Transportation" cases, these cases usually involve the defendant being stopped while driving a motor vehicle and then found to be in possession of a controlled substance. Note that unlike HS 11360 cases (Transportation of Marijuana), an individual charged with HS 11379 does not have to be transporting large quantities of a controlled substance. These cases are classified as felonies and carry a prison sentence of 2 to 4 years.
Section 11379 of the California Health and Safety code (commonly abbreviated "11379 H&S") covers the manufacture of illegal controlled substances. It is most commonly used to charge people accused of operating meth labs or otherwise manufacturing methamphetamine, but can be used for manufacture of other illegal drugs.
