Minnesota Drug Sentencing Reform


Minneapolis , Minnesota


Council on Crime and Justice

The Council on Crime and Justice conducted an HIA to inform the Minnesota State Legislature’s decision to reform state drug sentencing laws by providing evidence-based information about the potential health impacts on individuals, families, and communities. The findings and recommendations show that particular changes in the proposed legislation could yield positive (or negative) health outcomes related to addiction, mental health, drug treatment, and family and community well-being.

This project is supported by funding from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota Foundation.
