Air Force Cadet Accused Of Dealing Drugs Faces Court Martial

November 3, 2015

An Air Force Academy cadet accused of dealing prescription and illegal drugs to fellow students is scheduled to face a court martial Tuesday.

Three cadets granted immunity in the case testified at a hearing in August that Nathaniel Penalosa sold them the hallucinogen LSD and Modafinil, which helped them stay awake and study. Penalosa, a former airman who earned the Air Force Achievement Medal, is also accused of selling a methamphetamine derivative called "molly".
