How Tough Is Minnesota On Drug Offenders?

Minnesota is stringent in its treatment of drug offenders. Even relatively low-level crimes can carry up to five years in prison and $10,000 in fines. More serious offenses, of course, carry more serious penalties — a conviction, in some cases, will effectively put one behind bars for life.

As such, if you’re facing drug charges, it is incredibly important to find a knowledgeable lawyer who will assert your interests and rights. The attorneys at Coodin & Overson, PLLP, can help. We have more than 30 years of experience protecting individuals. We know the law and possess a thorough understanding of how to challenge the prosecution at every available step.

What Are The Penalties?

Minnesota separates its drug crimes into five distinct categories, ranging from the least to the most severe. Each has its own penalty structure for both possession and sale. They are set out as follows:
