Music notes

In addition to all the hoopla over nightclub safety in Reno, there’s another threat to nightclubs: The “RAVE Act of 2003” (H.R. 718). The bill is intended to target the owners of clubs in which drugs are found. Many believe this to be a sneaky attack on youth, specifically rave culture. “If these bills become law, property owners may be too afraid to rent or lease their property to groups holding dance parties,” reads an article on the Drug Policy Alliance website. Proposed laws “could bankrupt nightclubs, arenas and stadiums and put their owners in jail.” Check out www.drugpolicy.org to find out how you can get involved.
