Illegal Substances in Minnesota

Minnesota outlaws many different controlled substances. A “controlled substance” is a drug or chemical whose manufacture, possession, or use is regulated by the government. Typically, these are compounds that have a high potential for serious intoxication or abuse.

Examples of controlled substances that are illegal to possess or sell in Minnesota include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Methamphetamine
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Hallucinogenic drugs

The penalties for the possession or sale of these controlled substances range from less than one year in prison and up to a $10,000 fine, up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine. The penalty you receive depends on the amount of controlled substance in your possession at the time of your arrest.
