 Section 11369 is added to the Health and Safety Code, to read:

 (a) This section shall be known, and may be cited, as Alexandra’s Law.
(b) The court shall advise a person who is convicted of, or who pleads guilty or no contest to, a violation of Section 11351, 11352, or 11379.6 of the following:
“You are hereby advised that the illicit manufacture or distribution of controlled substances, either real or counterfeit, inflicts a grave health risk to those who ingest or are exposed to them. It is extremely dangerous to human life to manufacture or distribute real or counterfeit controlled substances. If you do so, and a person dies as a result of that action, you can be charged with voluntary manslaughter or murder.”
(c) The advisory statement shall be provided to the defendant in writing, either on the plea form or after sentencing, and the fact that the advisory was given shall be on the record and recorded in the abstract of the conviction.
