According to this site: http://alanellis.com/amendment-782-l...ug-guidelines/

"Who is qualified?

First, a defendant must have been convicted and sentenced for a federal drug offense. Second, if a defendant already received a downward variance of more than two levels, he likely will be ineligible to receive any more adjustment to his sentence unless the adjustment was the result of a 5K1.1 substantial assistance motion. Third, even if qualified, the court still has the discretion to deny the petition, or only grant it in part for a variety of reasons."

Hope this helps.
