    Court Rules Clubs Must Allow Ravers To Bring Their Silly Crap

    http://www.audiogalaxy.com/articles/images/raver.jpg'>
    [i]Thanks to the ACLU, this guy is free to dress like a post-apocalyptic idiot.[/i]

    As part of the American government's ongoing "War on Drugs," raves are being targeted all across the country. Citing a 400 percent increase in ecstasy use in three years, Congress passed the Ecstasy Prevention Act of 2001 last year, which resulted in longer jail sentences for traffickers and a huge increase in funding to combat the use of ecstasy and "other club drugs." While most court rulings in the last few years have favored the DEA over clubowners, the ACLU recently won a small but important case representing the ravers.

    First, a little background: In 1998, a 17-year-old girl died during a rave at the State Palace Theater in New Orleans of overheating, a condition often related to taking ecstasy. The owners of the venue were the first clubowners to be prosecuted under a 1986 federal "crackhouse law," which bars anyone from making a building available for drug sales. In May 2001, the owners reached a plea bargain with the DEA, paid a $100,000 fine, raised the club's minimum age to 18, and agreed to a ban of face masks, glowsticks, pacifiers, and other items considered "drug paraphernalia." Rave-goers at the theater were forced to throw away or hand over such personal items before they would be allowed inside.

    But last week, the ACLU's challenge, which stated that the ban, "embodies the government's unconstitutional assault against the electronic music culture," resulted in what the ACLU calls a "major victory." U.S. District Judge G. Thomas Porteous ruled that federal agents could not legally block such items, citing First Amendment rights. In his ruling, he said, "the government cannot ban inherently legal objects that are used in expressive communication because a few people use the same legal item to enhance the effects of an illegal substance." He also acknowledged that there is no evidence that banning such items has had any effect on ecstasy use.

    The court ruling is just a small step in preserving the threatened rave culture. The government crackdown on raves is having a major effect on the scene. Part of the Ecstasy Prevention Act rewards communities with grants for, "passing ordinances restricting rave clubs, increasing law enforcement on ecstasy, and seizing lands under nuisance abatement laws to make new restrictions on an establishment's use." This is dramatically cutting down the number of raves and rave-like events nationwide. Still, Porteous' ruling shows that at least one member of the government believes that the crackdown should be on the drugs and dealers, not on the culture.

    "Today's ruling tells law enforcement agents that if you want to target drug use at raves, you've got to play by the rules," said ACLU Drug Policy Litigation Project Director Graham Boyd in a press release. "Go after the drug dealers, not the entertainers and dancers and people who are there to enjoy the show."

    A couple of years ago here in Portland a girl died at a rave, same thing, over-heating. After a lengthy investigation (1 or 2 years) they managed to track down the dealer who sold her the E. He was charged with like manslaughter or something to that effect. Basically they held the dealer responsible for her death. That seemed pretty groundbreaking. I mean could they theoretically charge the dealer in any overdose death? Scary thought.

    kids dying from ecstasy is practically unheard of. kids dying from overheating/dehydration is the more common cause. or perhaps eating something thats not ecstasy at all.

    in short, drink water, stay cool, and know your dealer.


    oh yea edited becuase i forgot to say, fuck raver fashion in its loose butthole with sharpened glow sticks. *jaded.
