This is a reference to the criminal code - possession of a controlled substance. The entire statute can be read at: http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/fulltext.asp?DocName=072005700K402

It means the defendant is charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance other than methamphetamine. The Schedule of Controlled Substances is lengthy but most commonly the charge is for cocaine or heroin. It is a Class 4 felony (probationable but also carries a possible sentence of 1-3 years in prison). Your firend needs to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney. Most of us provdie free consultations. www.galivanlaw.net
