could not have gotten life for that at the state level, at the most he could have gotten 10 or 20 depending on if was Felony 2 or 3, he might have gotten as few as 2. most first time drug offenders get probation. 6 isn't bad, he'll do most of it any way as opposed to having been sentenced at the state level (early parole) -
