Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Russell G. Keast, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Greer and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (3 pages)

            Lestine Martin challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting her conviction for possession of a controlled substance (marijuana).  OPINION HOLDS: Because Martin stipulated that the substance recovered by officers was marijuana and she was the only adult who lived in her home—where the drugs were recovered—substantial evidence supports her conviction.
