What do you call the offenses from HSC that are 10-life due to the weight? They aren't enhanced or aggravated as considered by the Penal Code and CCP. Elevated First Degree? Super Duper First Degree?

For reporting purposes, where there are limited (check-box) options, a first degree felony, since that most closely fits. For the indictment, just "a felony", and then explain the range of punishment is a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of life.
