People v. Davis, S198434

Evidence of methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA)'s chemical name, standing alone, when that substance is not listed in the code, is insufficient to prove the material is a controlled substance regulated by the Health and Safety Code, and therefore, the Court of Appeal erred in concluding that sufficient evidence supported defendant's convictions for possession and sale of a controlled substance.
