(725 ILCS 175/2) (from Ch. 56 1/2, par. 1652)
    Sec. 2. Legislative Declaration. Narcotics racketeering is a far-reaching and extremely profitable criminal enterprise. Racketeering schemes persist despite the threat of prosecution and the actual prosecution and imprisonment of individual participants because existing sanctions do not effectively reach the money and other assets generated by such schemes. It is therefore necessary to supplement existing sanctions by mandating forfeiture of money and other assets generated by narcotics racketeering activities. Forfeiture diminishes the financial incentives which encourage and sustain narcotics racketeering, and secures for the People of the State of Illinois assets to be used for enforcement of laws governing narcotics activity.
