No Charges in Minnesota Drug Training Program

| No Comments

No charges will be filed against a Minnesota State Trooper or a Hutchinson police officer, both accused of supplying marijuana to subjects in a drug training program, the Star Tribune reported.

"There simply was insufficient evidence for us to file criminal charges," said Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman.

Last spring, Occupy Wall Street protestors claimed that police had offered them drugs and then performed tests on them at a Richfield facility as part of a drug testing program. The program was designed to train officers in detecting drug-impaired drivers, according to the Pioneer Press.

The Drug Recognition Evaluator program was suspended after allegations were made, and will not be reinstated.
