(410 ILCS 720/70)
The activities authorized by this Act require collaboration among covered manufacturers and among authorized collectors. These activities will enable safe and secure collection and disposal of covered drugs in Illinois and are therefore in the best interest of the public. The benefits of collaboration, together with active State supervision, outweigh potential adverse impacts. Therefore, the General Assembly intends to exempt from State antitrust laws, and provide immunity through the state action doctrine from federal antitrust laws, activities that are undertaken pursuant to this Act that might otherwise be constrained by such laws. The General Assembly does not intend and does not authorize any person or entity to engage in activities not provided for by this Act, and the General Assembly neither exempts nor provides immunity for such activities.
