Rappers and Ravers: Quit Glorifying Drugs That Kill

Categories: WTF

But encouraging behavior that is so directly linked to death is too much. Why mainstream EDM culture continues to glorify ecstasy is a mystery; indeed, as often as not, ravers and musicians will allege persecution by the media, or insist that the solution is simply "responsible drug use."

That is, in fact, the solution, but it doesn't mean getting kits to test your molly. It means not using molly.

Whatever happened to getting fucked up responsibly?

No, seriously, marijuana is a great drug that will not only safely get you high, it will, like, put you in touch with the spirit world. (And God bless the many, many rappers and ravers who speak up, nearly constantly, on its behalf.)

Magic mushrooms? Some scientists think they're pretty safe

And both of those drugs are waaaay cheaper than promethazine cough syrup, which we've heard can go for hundreds of dollars a bottle.

In any case, by all means have fun out there. Just put stuff in your body that will still allow you to have a body when it's over.

And if you're in a position where people actually give a shit what you say, try to say something that's not destructive.

Perhaps the RFT should write an article about the harms of legal drugs that like opiate pain killers and adderall. Those drugs kill way more people than lean and MDMA. Perhaps write an article about china and India manufacturing legal/grey market/illegal drugs that mimic the effects of MDMA because that's what Molly is. Or investigate how pharmaceutical companies have entire pallets of promethazine codeine syrup disappear and no is prosecuted. Here is a hint, it didn't "fall of a truck". Given how the RFT seems to have jumped the shark and become a bait click generator recently... here is a great story to write. It involves Instagram and people using fake accounts and burner phones to sell ____ (insert popular illegal drug here) follow that up with why green dot is allowed to have hundreds of millions of dollars change hands anonymously. This article has good intentions and I appreciate what the author was trying to say.. but please do your research next time. If in doubt follow the money is my advice. If you are reading this and you feel trapped by addiction seek help now! You only get one life don't live it as a slave. Drugs are bad M'kay!

Driven that train high on cocaine while Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is looking for the shelter of a mother's little helper.... I am not a rap / hip hop fan but, that article is few decades late. I wrote something on that while in high school. I used all the "dope songs" to write a cool speech.

Don't like 'em don't take 'em. People can say what they like, you don't have to like it. Choke on one RFT.

Nonsense. Indulge! It reduces the unemployment rate. There just aren't enough sandwiches out there for all of us. Some of you are just going to have to make room for the responsible.

I agree with the "don't take drugs that will kill you" sentiment in general, but sadly most of the article's facts are either partially misleading or totally incorrect.

Not to be a dick, but the stuff you guys are referring to as Ecstasy and Molly, are not ecstasy or Molly. They are not MDMA (Molly/X), they are generally a mish mash of random new chemicals, the stuff they spray on that fake weed crap. True MDMA is not gonna kill you. The fake shit will. If you really feel the need to roll, test kits are out there, buy them. Then be sad when you find out it's all fake these days. Unless you know a chemist don't waste your time. At least be informed as to what you're putting in your body.

"Ravers" don't necessarily do that. One Progressive House guy makes a song about Molly and it's a huge phenomenon for good and bad reasons. Rappers have been glorifying some of the raunchiest things I've ever heard on top of violence against your peers, but no one seems to care.

I hate nanny statists who want to restrict or ban alcohol, tobacco and minor drugs, but at the same time, I question the sanity of people who like to make speeches about how these drugs are not only perfectly healthy, but even "good" for you.
