Conviction for drug crimes is affirmed where: 1) there was sufficient evidence to support defendant's conviction; and 2) the district court did not abuse its discretion by admitting the prior bad acts evidence of defendant's previous firearms sales, as the evidence at issue was relevant and highly probative as to knowledge and intent.
