Minnesota: Zero Tolerance on All Drugs Except Marijuana

Minnesota has a “zero tolerance” policy when it comes to all drugs other than marijuana. It doesn’t matter if you have “just a little bit” in your possession, you will still be facing a felony charge.

Understanding Illegal Drug Charges

Drug laws are complex and confusing. So are your rights if you are charged with a drug crime. Was there an illegal police search? Should you cooperate with authorities? Can the state prove the drugs were yours? If you are convicted, sentences can vary from probation and a few classes to years in prison. It is never wise to go to court on your own when your freedom is on the line. You need an attorney on your side to help navigate you through the uncertainties of drug charges.
