If you find the defendant guilty of the crime[s] charged in Count[s]
<insert counts charging manufacturing or processing of controlled
substance>, you must then decide whether[, for each crime,] the People

a specified amount of the controlled substance. [You must decide whether
the People have proved this allegation for each crime and return a
separate finding for each crime.]
To prove this allegation, the People must prove that:
1. A substance used in, to be used in, or produced during the
(manufacturing/ <insert description of alleged other
process>) process contained <insert controlled
substance from Health & Saf. Code, §§ 11054-11058>;
[AND]
2. The substance containing <insert controlled
substance> was more than <insert quantity alleged>
by (weight/volume)(./;)
<Give element 3 if enhancement alleged in conspiracy count.>
[AND
3. The defendant was substantially involved in the direction or
supervision of, or in a significant portion of the financing of, the
(manufacturing/ <insert description of alleged other
process>) of <insert controlled substance>.]
[In deciding whether the required (weight/volume) has been proved, do
not take into account plant or vegetable material.]
The People have the burden of proving each allegation beyond a

BENCH NOTES
Instructional Duty
The court has a sua sponte duty to give this instruction when the defendant is
charged with an enhancement based on the quantity of the controlled substance.
(Apprendi v. New Jersey (2000) 530 U.S. 466, 490 [120 S.Ct. 2348, 147 L.Ed.2d
435].)
904
Give bracketed element 3 if the enhancement is alleged in a count of conspiracy to
manufacture a controlled substance. (Health & Saf. Code, § 11379.8(e); People v.
Duran (2001) 94 Cal.App.4th 923, 941 [114 Cal.Rptr.2d 595].) Do not give element
3 if the defendant is not charged with conspiracy but is being prosecuted for one or
more substantive offenses on a theory of coconspirator liability. (People v. Duran,
supra, 94 Cal.App.4th at p. 942.) If the defendant is charged with the enhancement
on both conspiracy and substantive offenses, the court should give this instruction
once for the conspiracy charge, with element 3, and once for all the substantive
offenses, without element 3. If properly instructed, the jury need not make a special
finding that the defendant was substantially involved. (People v. Lobato (2003) 109
Cal.App.4th 762, 766 [135 Cal.Rptr.2d 429].)

RELATED ISSUES
Combining Measurements
Health and Safety Code section 11379.8 provides two sets of measurements, one for
“liquid by volume” and one for “solids by weight.” “[S]o long as there is sufficient
evidence, the trier of fact should be permitted to add the common measures of the
seized substances in order to meet the statute’s standards.” (People v. Good (1990)
217 Cal.App.3d 1533, 1537 [266 Cal.Rptr. 608].)
