well yes the sentence does seem excessive by any standard, however i would have to guess it was due to the fact that such a large amount crossed borders. if they had say, gotten the tabs from a local source, it would have probably been much different.

distribution and conspiracy to distribute charges are far different than trafficking laws =/

also, a quick search on tussal turns up this:

Tussal-ER Sustained-Release Tablets Generic Name: Dexbrompheniramine/Dextromethorphan/Phenylephrine Sustained-Release Tablets

Phenylephrine or Neo-Synephrine is an α-adrenergic receptor agonist used primarily as a decongestant, as an agent to dilate the pupil and to increase blood pressure. Phenylephrine has recently been marketed as a substitute for pseudoephedrine

Dexbrompheniramine maleate is an antihistamine used to treat allergic conditions such as hay fever or urticaria.

totally not sure if they are the same tabs, but if they are, that sucks for the ppl that would have bought them =/
