Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • If testimony is received that possession of an amount of drugs is inconsistent with individual personal use, it is not necessarily an opinion that the defendant intended to distribute it. A given quantity of a controlled substance can be possessed jointly by several individuals. In such a case, that amount might be inconsistent with an individual’s personal use, and yet not establish an intent to distribute.
