It's very hard to say, without knowing how much of just what else your friend was found with.  Other things that matter are: your friend's prior record, whether he has been or will be asked to cooperate with the police and, if so, if he agrees, and quite possibly other things as well, including the prosecutor's view.

But I think it's safe to say that if your friend is convicted of all of this, he'll be away for at least a few years.  He definitely needs a lawyer, because this is very serious trouble.
