In California, if you are convicted of specific drug offenses, you’ll need to register as a drug offender. This process, similar to the sex offender registry, entails informing local law enforcement about your general location. If convicted under certain sections of the Health and Safety Code, this registration is mandatory. Particularly, under California Health & Safety § 11590, individuals convicted of a Drug Offense must register as Narcotics Offenders for a minimum of 5 years.
