Possession of Methamphetamine is the unlawful possession for personal use of methamphetamine. (This code section also covers the unlawful possession of other specified non-“narcotic” substances such as steroids, ketamine and others).
Possession of Methamphetamine is a “wobbler” and can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. If the possession was not for sales, the defendant may qualify for drug treatment, instead of jail or prison time, through a Penal Code § 1000 Drug Diversion program or a Proposition 36 drug program.
