Criminal Law for Criminal Justice

During an undercover investigation, Officer Cline witnessed Defendant #1 purchase a bag of what appeared to be marijuana and LSD. When Officer Cline approached the dealer (Defendant #2), he was given a similar bag. Following the purchase, officers approached and arrested both defendants on narcotics violations. Forensic tests later revealed that the contents of the bag were nothing more than honey and dried leaf matter and rolling paper coated with lime extract. The defense attorneys for both defendants have argued that no crime was committed and the charges should be dropped. As the prosecutor, would you drop the charges? Be sure to address the charges for both actors here and please explain your answer.
