What you should know

Mexican traffickers control the transportation, distribution and bulk sales of cocaine, marijuana, meth and small amounts of black tar heroin. Upper-echelon Mexican dealers bring most of their proceeds back to family members in Mexico. Retail distribution is through African-American traffickers and street gangs, Native American gangs and independent Caucasian groups.

Compared to other states

  • Illicit drugs overall – moderately low for those 18 and older
  • Alcohol – among the highest for those 18 and older
  • Marijuana – moderately high for those 18-25, average for those 26 and older
  • Pharmaceuticals – average for those 18-25, moderately low for those 26 and older

A closer look


A very significant problem.


Most commonly used and readily available. Hispanic street gangs are the major distributors.


Mostly California, Chicago and Detroit sources. Independent African-American traffickers and street gangs control distribution of crack in Minneapolis/St. Paul and other areas.


A continuing problem. Most commonly abused are Nubain, Dilaudid, Ritalin, Vicodin, OxyContin, codeine combination products, benzodiazepines, methylphenidate, phentermine and phendimetrazine. Klonopin is on the rise in rural areas. Sources are the illegal sale and distribution by health care professionals and workers as well as “doctor shopping.”


Increase in Minneapolis/St. Paul area. But, overall, heroin has not been a significant problem. In addition to Mexican organizations, traffickers include Nigerian/West African groups operating from Chicago and New York as well as African-American street gangs with ties to Chicago. Hispanic and African-American street gangs primarily handle distribution.


Large quantities produced by Mexican organizations based in California. In addition, small laboratories increasingly are producing a few ounces at a time. In rural areas, independent Caucasian groups and outlaw motorcycle gangs distribute meth in small amounts.

Club drugs

Mostly used among gays and young people at raves and nightclubs. MDMA (Ecstasy), ketamine, GHB, GBL, Rohypnol, LSD, PCP, Nubain and, to a lesser extent, psilocybin mushrooms, are abused.
