Drug Free Zones

The law* is tough on anyone caught selling or possessing illegal drugs in or within one city block or three hundred feet of any Minnesota:

Adults convicted of the sale or possession of illegal drugs in a school, park, public housing, or drug treatment facility zone can be sentenced as follows:

Sale of Narcotic Drugs

(methamphetamine, amphetamine, cocaine, crack, opium, heroin, LSD, or 5 kilograms of marijuana)

Possession of Narcotic Drugs

(methamphetamine, amphetamine, cocaine, crack, opium, heroin, or 5 or more dosage units of LSD)

Sale of 25 Kilograms of Marijuana
Sale of Any Amount of Marijuana
Sale of Other Illegal Drugs

(speed, PCP, marijuana, or any other drug)

Juveniles convicted of these crimes who are at least 14 years old can be treated as an adult and sentenced in an adult court.

School, park, public housing, and drug treatment facility zones begin at the boundaries of the property and extend three hundred feet from that point, or one city block, whichever distance is greater.
