I think its the person's own personal decision. I mean personally i can have fun at a rave without drugs. But I can have a fucking blast at a rave when i am on drugs. Everyone has their own opinion. P.L.U.R

i have been in the scene for four and a half years, and i have never once done drugs, honesty. i've been workin on promoting and booking around eastern nc for about a year now, and from all that i've seen..drugs make you look REAL dumbstruck, loose all energy ans sometimes even make you forget what you did. not to mention the trouble you could get into and the cost! man, i oculd have way more fun sober! P*L*U*R

Unfortunately, that seems to be what the rave scene has come to mean lately. Like the others, I gave up getting f*cked up like that years ago when I realized that I was becoming a hypocrite - how could I talk trash about the cops and media for tainting the meaning of "rave" when I was contributing to the drug-induced crowd that they saw and referred to? True, it is one's own perogative to decide whether or not to "enhance" their rave experience, but what I have a problem with is the mother fuckers who forget what the love of the music is all about - people who are worried about not having a good time or worse, not even going to a bangin' party at all because they "need" to get fucked up. The rave has become more of a haven for people looking to specifically get crunked, THEN enjoy the music as less of a priority. They don't really care what the music is all about anymore and it is the attention that these people get that brings bad vibes to our scene from the law, the media, the public. Security in the clubs nowadays are out to buzz kill everyone in a seek-and-destroy mission to kick out anyone who even looks intoxicated, whether by legal means or not- literally pushing kids around and then throwing them out if they step to the staff, questioning everybody they think looks suspicious, you can't even sit on the freakin' floor in some clubs! Try getting close to someone to talk over the music, they assume you're trying to carry out some massive drug deal under their noses and give you the 5th degree...try showing love to someone and they think that you're rolling, and then everyone you come in contact with becomes suspect. I mean, how can you have good time in such a shit-attitude environment? That's not what the scene is about. But, you're never going to stop people from using drugs at raves - it has become way too associated with the culture and too emeshed with the music itself - and the reality is that it is only the rave club scene that has become the scapegoat for the drugs-n-club dichotomy, not the hip hop scene (which has been talking about E for some time now), not the punk scene...It is really sad that we as a culture have been made responsible for all the problems with drugs in the underground music scene and the "trendy" young crowd. You know, there is a certain level of maturity that comes with making the decision to take drugs, and the problem is that we don't have enough of those people supporting our scene for what it's worth - FOR THE LOVE OF THE FUCKING MUSIC.

i think it's better with them most of the time but not all the time. i hate kids that just go for drugs, act all lovey dovey while rolling but are truly assholes. however, the right drugs for the right people if they are there for the right reasons rox! i mean, drugs have been a part of the scene since its start, and tere i nothing wrong with that...it just gets fucked up when it gets mainstream...but, hey, if ou like to be sober....more power to you. life is awesome. rolling is just another awesome part of life! plurr:), a

I think that the drugs, really, are bad for you. The Long term consequences of using drugs, are not worth that short time experience. well, I think that it's okay to experience drugs. But that it should be occasionally. If you care about your mind, then you shouldn't be a laboratory experiment. you can tell who takes care of yourself. usually drug users don't take care of themselves. you end up spending all your money, on the drug week after week, living the same days in and out. when will it ever change? when you change. step out of the drugs and you'll see what it's doing. I used K for 4 years straight. It put me in the hospital twice, with migraines. I also used E for the same amount of time. I have seizures, and get blackouts. I also used acid. hey , I would do a drop today if it was in my hand. But be careful of what you do. I once did a drop that was miced up, meaning like 10 sheets was in one drop, and went out of this world. I saw things only god God can see. so I've been clean for 2 years now. well, hey if you have to do drugs, take mushrooms or go for the Peyote, that's organic stuff, and smoke a little weed. but you really don't know what the man made shit is doing to your mind. Thats why alcohol is illegal. they want us to be stupid. when was the last time you saw someone stoned kill someone? The music is what the scene is about. you'd be a real raver if you could name all the DJ'S and their album releases, and who spins what, rather then all the types of E pills you've consumed. We have a responsibility to represent the Racve culture properly.
