Illinois

Illinois has always been a center for drug traffickers because of its location. The mere fact that Chicago’s O’Hare Airport is the busiest in the country has made Illinois popular with drug trafficking organizations.

The prevalence of gangs in Chicago has resulted in a rise in homicides, prostitution, money laundering and social ills for the community.

Most cocaine in Chicago comes into the city via trucks. Once in the city, the cocaine is quickly repackaged and moved throughout Illinois, New York City and Philadelphia. Heroin is widely available in Illinois. Colombian drug lords have become a presence in Chicago and play a large role in smuggling heroin into Illinois. The ample availability of heroin has meant a drop in prices. Consequently, a drop in cost has resulted in the lower quality and higher potency of the drug.

Methamphetamine has become a steadily increasing problem. It is produced in great quantities in clandestine laboratories. The drug is made in rural areas of the state from chemicals stolen from pharmacies, agriculture stores and the chemical industry.

Despite a ban on the sale of ephedrine, the main ingredient in cough medicine, the number of methamphetamine labs continues to increase. Chicago is a big city and crucial to international trade. As a result, the city has a problem with club drugs. Chicago is the biggest distributor of club drugs across the Midwest. MDMA (ecstasy, GHB, Ketamine and PCP).
