Abstract

This Legislative Note discusses the new Illinois Drug Induced Homicide Statute that went into effect January 1, 1989. The Note traces the common law history of imposing homicide liability on drug suppliers for drug-related deaths and compares the Illinois statute with eleven other state statutes creating this type of homicide liability. The Note suggests ways the legislature or judiciary could clarify the statute through amendment or interpretation.
