Congress Hates Electronica! Rave Act II is a Fascist’s Wet Dream!

Congress is considering a bill that would reduce the number of electronic music concerts, and keep promoters from hosting raves and other electronica concerts.

If enacted, the Ecstasy Awareness Act would throw people in jail who organize raves or similar electronic dance events if some of their customers used drugs.

This is one more way electronica is being targeted as part of the “war on drugs”. Unfortunately, by targetting the promoters, this bill will effectively limit your access to electronic music.

If enacted, H.R. 2962 would make it a federal crime punishable by up to 20 years in prison to profit “monetarily from a rave or similar electronic dance event, knowing or having reason to know that the unlawful use or distribution of a controlled substance occurs at the rave or similar event.”

If you think this is BS, let Congress know. The Drug Policy Action Center has a online form you can fill out that will automatically send a message to your representative in congress. Help stop this before it becomes a stupid, unnecessary law that discriminates against your music!
