Dealing can be shown by either direct or circumstantial evidence. See Stokes v. State, 801 N.E.2d 1263, 1271-72 (Ind. Ct. App. 2004).  “Because intent is a mental state, a trier of fact must generally resort to the reasonable inferences arising from the surrounding circumstances to determine whether the requisite intent exists.  Circumstantial evidence showing intent to deliver may support a conviction for dealing in cocaine.  Possession of a large quantity of drugs, money, plastic bags,  and other paraphernalia is circumstantial evidence of intent to deliver.  Furthermore, the more narcotics a person possesses, the stronger the inference that he intended to deliver it and not consume it personally.” Wilson v. State, 754 N.E.2d 950, 957 (Ind. Ct. App. 2001).
