Have you been approached for enrollment in a research study while under an involuntary commitment order?

When the Minnesota legislature passed Dan’s Law in 2009, it placed strict limits on the ability of psychiatrists to recruit mentally ill patients under involuntary commitment orders into drug studies.   What is unclear is whether psychiatric researchers are actually complying with Dan’s Law.  We would like to find out more.  If you or anyone you know has been approached for enrollment in a research study while under a commitment order, I would be grateful if you could send an email to me (ellio023) at my gmail address.
