E-Zoo Molly PSA [VIDEO]
Drugs are bad mmmmmkay.
E-Zoo was forced to cancel its third day of music last summer after two people died due to drug-related events at the festival. This year they're getting the word out about the real dangers of Molly and Ecstasy. It's part of festival organizer Made Event's 'Come To Life campaign.'
In a statement about the PSA, Made Event founders Laura De Palma and Mike Bindra said:
'Our message to concertgoers is simple: The Electric Zoo experience is exceptional and worth being present for. Molly can cause you to not only miss the moment, alienate your friends and have an overall adverse and unpleasant experience … but can also make you sick and can even be fatal. Fans will experience how great it is to ‘Come To Life’ at one of our concerts from lights, sounds and crowds.'
It’s important to remember not everyone who goes to raves takes Molly, nor do most artists approve of its use. In 2012 Madonna made an appearance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. While on stage Madge made a reference to the drug asking ‘Has anyone seen Molly?’
EDM producer Deadmau5 rightfully blasted her in a Rolling Stone article saying:
‘You want to be ‘hip’ and ‘cool’ and ‘funky grandma’? Fine. It’s not my place to say you’re irrelevant. If you’re gonna come into my world, at least do it with a little more dignity. I understand she has millions more fans, and is way more successful than I’ll ever be. But it’s like talking about slavery at a f****** blues concert. It’s inappropriate.’
