1969 – Drug Reward Plan –
one resident of Minot called a public meeting to try and raise $10,000.00 to be used as a reward to curb the drug problem in Minot. He stressed his proposal was not to undermine the police department but to assist them in their efforts to curb the drug market. Minot police disclosed that their investigations showed there were cells of drug users at the junior high, senior high and college levels. The committee felt the reward system would deter the pushers and chase them out of Minot.
