When two or more people agree to commit a crime, it may be defined as conspiracy
by state and/or federal law enforcement officials. One common type of
conspiracy is “drug conspiracy,” which would be the agreement
of two or more people to make, sell, transport and/or distribute drugs.
Conspiracy is an offense that is separate from the illegal act itself
and may carry additional penalties.
