Anti-Rave Bill Passes
Joe Biden's anti-rave legislation, now known as the Illicit Drug Anti-Proliferation Act, passed the House and Senate late last night. The legislation, which holds venue owners liable for drug use on their property, generated considerable controversy last year. This time around Biden avoided debate by attaching the bill in conference to legislation establishing a national network to track abducted children. Drug policy reformers worry that the law could have wide application, discouraging people from hosting events that might attract drug users.
