Drop The Glowsticks

The dictionary defines "rave" as: to utter in madness or frenzy; to say wildly; to rave nonsense, which makes you wonder why raves were ever called raves to begin with. Raves consist of about 300-6,000 kids aged 14 to about 25. The setting, a big empty warehouse, lights, a fog machine and multiple Disc Jockeys (DJ). Every single rave has 1 type of music: techno with a lot of bass. It's electronically created with a very fast-pace beat. Techno music has its origins in gay dance clubs. Hip-hop also has had a big impact on techno music. Ravers say they lose themselves to the beat and become one with the music by letting the music control their movements. Most drug using rave enthusiasts dance using glow sticks to intensify the effects of hallucinogens. Others perform difficult break dancing moves , which cause the dancer to remain sober and concentrate. But even with the harmony and peace, there is a downside- drugs. You cannot separate a rave from drug use. Ecstasy (mdma) is the most popular substance used at these " parties " . There is also Crystal Methanphedamine , which is the dirtiest most addictive drug around, also very popular. The next is GHB, more commonly know to the public as the date rape drug. Special K (ketamine) is very popular among the rave crowd, and that's simply an animal tranquilizer. The people that go to raves just to get high are the people that put a stigma on the rave and surrounding culture .Most rave-goers automatically assume they know everything about the rave scene since there are into the drugs involved. Other ravers are into giving hugs, sharing love and having new experiences, the idea of P.L.U.R. ( Peace Love Unity Respect ). I would like to give a brief check on the main drug Ecstasy. Which is MDMA sold in pill formation sold for 15-30 dollars each. It is important to understand what it is and its background. Ecstasy or MDMA first originated in 1914 and was used as an appetite

    Raver Subculture in Young America Over the past few years, an interesting focus has developed among our youth subculture in American society today.

This subculture mainly consists of people who go to "raves," also known as, underground dance parties where people go to hear "techno" (electronically produced) music and have intense experiences, which…
