Defendant's drug distribution conviction is affirmed where: 1) the district court told the jury to use great care when determining the voluntariness of defendant's confession and to consider the relevant circumstances before deciding how much weight to give the confession; and 2) Congress did not intend for the word "knowingly" in 18 U.S.C. section 841(a) to modify language in section 841(b).
