A 'buffet' of drugs storm rave parties!

Youngsters who "do drugs" are also catching up with the "etiquettes" of rave parties. So if the DJ is belting out heavy metal numbers, it's a cue for them to order ecstasy. But if he is playing blues, it's time for hash.

This is the latest trend at rave parties, pubs and discotheques in urban India, say officials of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) who are keeping a close tab on such parties.

Drug parties become a rage from September, which heralds the festival season in the country, and the consumption of drugs touches an all-time high.

Drugs are served just like the exotic cuisine and partygoers can get their "high" depending on the music that sets the mood for the party.

"It is like a buffet of drugs. Partygoers can choose their drug," NCB director A. Shankar Rao said.

"We know that such parties are being organised in large numbers in the capital. But we do not have much information on people who run the drug racket," he said.

Since ecstasy, heroin and cocaine are more aggressive drugs, they are consumed when rock or retro music is being played at the party. Marijuana and hash are taken when the DJ plays country music or jazz.
