Purchase Syringes

It is legal under MN State law to purchase and possess clean, unused syringes. [MSA 151.40, subd 2 and MSA 152.01, subd 18(b)]

The Minnesota AIDS Project works with community partners including the Minnesota Department of Health to engage pharmacies to promote syringe access. The pharmacies on this map have agreed to participate in the Syringe Access Initiative. For more information about the Minnesota Pharmacy/Syringe Access Initiative, visit the Minnesota Department of Health website.

Please note that the cost of syringes may vary from $2.50 to $5.00/pack. Pharmacies periodically change their policy regarding syringe access. To help simplify the purchase process, please call the pharmacy prior to your arrival and ask them if they sell packs of syringes without a prescription. If the person you are speaking to is unsure, ask them to check with the pharmacist on duty to verify. If you have difficulty purchasing syringes at a pharmacy on this page or need information about syringe exchange services, please call the Minnesota AIDS Project AIDSLine at 612–373–2437 or 800–248–2437.
