OLD: "Illegal Activities. Concerns that are engaged in illegal activity or are engaged in the production, servicing, or distribution by sale or otherwise of products or services used in connection with an illegal activity. This includes, but is not limited to, the production, servicing, distribution of products or services that are used or intended to be used primarily or exclusively in connection with the unlawful use of drugs or controlled substances."

NEW: "Business engaged in any illegal activity."
