In a prosecution for possession of methamphetamine and resisting arrest, trial court's use of Judicial Counsel of California Criminal Jury Instructions CALCRIM No. 2550 when instructing the jury is upheld, as this standardized instruction does not improperly direct minority jurors to give way to majority jurors or improperly tell the jury that all criminal cases must be decided at some point.
