RAVERS AND THEIR CULTURE OF DRUGS. Jeffrey Lee, Dept. of Criminal Justice, Troy University, Troy, AL 36382. Jessica Cotton and Sarah Connor Dept. of Criminal Justice, Troy University, Troy, AL 36382. Raves are all-night dance parties that feature frenetic music often accompanied by laser lights and video shows. The rave culture in American society is popular among teens and young adults. Peace, love, unity, and respect are all elements of this culture; however, raves are frequently plagued by illicit drug sales, distribution, and use. This presentation examines the development of the rave subculture while focusing on its birth in Ibiza, an island off the coast of Spain, to its emergence in rural England, to the current rave format in the United States. The presentation will describe rave activities and various aspects of the raver lifestyle. Lastly, it will examine commonly abused drugs at raves and analyze public health concerns associated with these parties.
