Re: why bother with the drugs trial at all?

There is only one 'conspiracy to commit murder' charge (not actual murder don't forget) yet there are probably hundreds of individual drug-related crimes he might be found guilty of.

In the US I think this means he can receive a sentence for each instance (rather than as one group of crimes).
