People v. Bergen, B203793

In a prosecution for manufacturing concentrated cannabis by using butane to extract the resin containing the psychoactive ingredient THC from marijuana plant material, conviction following plea of no contest is affirmed where when, as here, the method used to extract the marijuana resin was by means of a chemical such as butane, section 11379.6(a) applies over the more general statute punishing marijuana cultivation, harvesting or processing.
