Is there such a crime as conspiracy with intent to distribute drugs?
Yes. The crime of conspiracy is a charge where the government is alleging that you take an act in furtherance of the crime. The crime of conspiracy as it relates to narcotic sales means that you’re assisting in those sales. It does not necessarily mean that you are partaking in the sales. The government often charges people with conspiracy when they know that they are involved in criminal activity but are uncertain of the specific role.
