Where evidence showed that a defendant bought drugs and shared the drugs with others over a long period of time, a jury could reasonably conclude that he knowingly and voluntarily joined a conspiracy to distribute drugs and that he shared a common purpose with his suppliers, so the evidence was sufficient to support a conviction for conspiracy to distribute, and the defendant’s express agreement to a jury instruction waived any objection to the instruction.
Judgment is affirmed.
