PER CURIAM: In this criminal action, Michael J. Brown argues the circuit court erred in denying his motion for directed verdict on the offense of trafficking in cocaine. We affirm pursuant to Rule 220, SCACR, and the following authority: State v. McCluney, 361 S.C. 607, 606 S.E.2d 485 (2004) (holding that the use of imitation cocaine in a reverse-buy was not outside the scope of the trafficking in cocaine statute, because evidence that defendant conspired with others and attempted to purchase real cocaine was sufficient to support a conviction under the trafficking statute).
HEARN, C.J., and STILWELL and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
