"The distribution and abuse of illicit drugs pose a serious threat to the safety and welfare of Minnesota residents. Illicit drugs are transported into Minnesota for distribution and through the state for distribution in other areas. While most of the illicit drugs available in Minnesota are transported from Mexico and southwestern states, Minnesota also is vulnerable to drugs smuggled across the U.S.-Canada border, particularly marijuana and MDMA. Mexican drug trafficking organizations (DTOs), criminal groups, outlaw motorcycle gangs (OMGs), street gangs, and local independent dealers distribute drugs within the state."
