Before BAUER, POSNER, and ROVNER, Circuit Judges.

POSNER, Circuit Judge.

This criminal appeal requires us to wrestle once again with the distinction between a "mere" buyer-seller relation and a conspiracy involving a buyer and a seller. For our earlier struggles with the issue, see, e.g., United States v. Colon, 549 F.3d 565 (7th Cir.2008), and the six opinions in United States v. Lechuga, 994 F.2d 346 (7th Cir.1993) (en banc).
