 American Civil Liberties Union : Feds Seek to Shut Music Clubs
WASHINGTON -- The federal government is seeking to shut down "rave" music and dance clubs in an effort to wipe out the drug MDMA, which is known as ecstasy, Reuters reported.
Joe Keefe, chief of operations for the Drug Enforcement Administration in Washington, told Reuters in an interview that use of ecstasy at rave houses is rampant and growing, and that promoters and proprietors of these venues are running criminal enterprises that encourage and facilitate dangerous drug use.
Rejecting the argument of rave operators that they search for drugs and confiscate what they find -- and actively discourage the use of ecstasy and other drugs -- Keefe insists they "are doing a pretty good job of helping facilitate it" by providing chill rooms, ice water, pacifiers and other items.
