A: You need to consult with an attorney. Those are serious charges and they won't just go away. To answer your specific question, the word "prove" more correctly means "convinces the jury." So the question is really how can the prosecutor convince the jury that you were an accomplice who intended to use illegal drugs. You should consult with an attorney about the details of your situation. The attorney will assess how strong the prosecutor's case is and help you understand your options.
