Anti-Rave bill

  1. So I came across this article and it really just infuriates me. Why on earth are they shutting down raves? Raves are a pretty safe environment as far as I can tell. It's a controlled situation, with water readily available for dancers, as well as supervisors, and access to EMT if need be. It's important to know that ecstasy in and of itself probably isn't what kills ravers. It's the many hours of dancing without any liquid intake.

    I've heard of more people dying at a house party with a bunch of kids who don't know what the fuck they're doing than at a rave. Raves are badass, and ideally, I'd like to play music at some point in the future at one. I want to get into DJing and mixing, beat matching and all that fun stuff.

    Here's a link to the full bill itself: AB 74 Assembly Bill - INTRODUCED

    Forgive me if I seem retarded or am not making much sense, I'm severely sleep deprived and quite woozy lol.

  3. I agree. I don't have much rave experience but the ones that I have been to have always been a pretty safe environment. Maybe it's the fact that it's well known that e-circulation is prevalent in raves and they have to take a no-tolerance stance on it.

    It'll just drive the whole scene underground into more flash mob guerrilla style parties where safety isn't really a concern.
