Are Music Festivals Unfairly Targeted For Drugs?

Via Tom Camden
Steve Nova's insight:

I felt that this article was very credible and had a lot of statistics and had interviews with the promoters of music festivals where drug over dose has happned. This article leaves the information the table and allows you to develop your own oppion about it. I myself think that edm music festivals are being targeted for drig use. I feel like this sort of thing happens all the time and that certain festivals are the scape goat. I do think it is a problem and should fixed but its not just happening at dance festivals

Steve Nova's insight:

One of the biggest cons to music festivals is the fact that drugs do happen and many teens do attend these festivals and tend to go a bit wild at times, However drugs are used around the world so the use of drugs being used at these festivals is completely based up on opinion.

This article has a good source. There are a lot of ways to warn people about using drugs at these events and I think this article has a good view on it.

This article goes into detail on how drugs can be a huge problem in music festivals.  It also talks about the drug Molly and how its destroying the music festival industry.

Drug use at music festivals is inevitable. The most we can do is create help for serious situations. Plan for a safer future of music festivals.

Derek Rammel's curator insight, April 13, 2014 10:46 AM

I think that it good that they are popping up in every corner of the world because they can be extremely profitable.  I also believe that music festivals are more risky than concerts because they are more of an investment for the consumer.
