Albernez v. United States
In Albernez v. United States, 450 U.S. 333, 101 S.Ct. 1137, 67 L.Ed.2d 275 (1981), the conspiracy had as its aims both the importation and the distribution of a controlled substance.
Congress has enacted specific statutes making it a crime to conspire to violate the substantive provisions of the Drug Control Act regarding importation, 21 U.S.C. Sec. 963, and to conspire to violate the substantive provisions of the Drug Control Act regarding distribution, 21 U.S.C. Sec. 846.
The court thus found that, since the two statutes required proof of different objectives of the conspiracy, that Congress had clearly intended to make the single conspiracy which encompassed both of those aims subject to cumulative punishment.
