Conviction for drug crimes is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in denying defendant's motion for judgment of acquittal, as sufficient testimony confirmed she knew of the conspiracy and intentionally joined it, and was an actual participant despite her minor role; and 2) the court did not abuse its discretion in denying her motion for new trial.
