The use of a communication facility to cause or facilitate the commission of a felony drug offense is found in Title 21 USC Section 843(b). This include the use of mail or telephone.
Even the passive receipt of a parcel containing drugs is enough to convict a defendant of this crime if there is circumstantial evidence showing the recipient knew of the contents.
The important element needed to prove “facilitation” is that the telephone conversation made the offense easier or less difficult to accomplish which would aid in the implementation of the crime.
