Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

Attorney General of the State of Illinois, or the State's Attorney
of any county in which the action is brought, petition, for an order
enjoining such violation or for an order enforcing compliance with

as a pharmacist or operate a pharmacy or drugstore, including a nonresident

Act, then any licensed pharmacist, any interested party or any person
injured thereby may, in addition to the Secretary, petition for relief
as provided in subsection (a) of this Section.
Whoever knowingly practices or offers to practice in this State without
being appropriately licensed or registered under this Act shall be guilty
of a Class A misdemeanor and for each subsequent conviction, shall

(c) Whenever in the opinion of the Department any person not
in good standing under this Act violates any provision of this Act,
the Department may issue a rule to show cause why an order to cease
and desist should not be entered against him. The rule shall clearly
set forth the grounds relied upon by the Department and shall provide
a period of 7 days from the date of the rule to file an answer to the
satisfaction of the Department. Failure to answer to the satisfaction
of the Department shall cause an order to cease and desist to be issued
