The Illinois State Crime Commission is asking the Illinois Attorney General to create a task force to battle the spread of heroin.
The group highlights recent stories out of St. Clair County where one judge is charged with heroin possession and a probation officer is charged with dealing the drug.
Another judge died of a suspected cocaine overdose.
The Crime Commission says there needs to be an anti-heroin task force the likes of the prohibition era “Untouchables.”
The executive director says “this heroin virus has the potential to corrupt every facet of our society and must be stopped”.
