NEW! The Ecstasy Awareness Act would throw anyone in jail who “profits monetarily from a rave or similar electronic dance event knowing or having reason to know” that some people will use drugs. It could become law soon without your help. NEW! The CLEAN-UP Act makes it a federal crime – punishable by up to nine years in prison - to promote "any rave, dance, music, or other entertainment event, that takes place under circumstances where the promoter knows or reasonably ought to know that a controlled substance will be used or distributed." It could become law soon without your help. These proposed laws make criminals out of every concert promoter, nightclub owner, and stadium or arena owner. The government is making unreasonable demands— they can’ t even keep drugs out of their own prisons, yet they want to punish business owners that can’ t keep drugs out of their events. Every musical style could be affected by these laws, including rock, Hip-Hop, country, and electronic music. Four Things You Can Do 1.
