Electric Zoo Cancelled After Two Deaths and Four People In Critical...

Posted by - 11:05 AM on 09/01/13
Following the news that one person died and two were in serious condition at Zedd's tour opener in Boston, Electric Zoo has canceled the last day (today) of the three day festival due to two deaths and four more people in critical condition.
The founders of Electric Zoo send our deepest condolences to the families of the two people who passed away this weekend. Because there is nothing more important to us than our patrons, we have decided in consultation with the New York City Parks Department that there will be no show today.

My buddy went to Spring Awakening and he said he was amazed at how many young kids were openly asking people for "Molly".

pop culture and the mainstream has embraced Molly as a no big deal type of drug....it's almost been built up as an equivalent to marijuana, but I think a lot of people forget that Molly is fucking ecstacy. Like taking it once in a blue moon is fine, but not to sound like a square, but there are definitely huge health risks for taking it (especially in abundance).

my friends (who are punk/indie rock fans) have recently started to get into this fad....hopefully it dies soon

lack of knowledge man. people don't realize that molly IS ecstasy. Like ecstasy, if you take it in abundance or abuse it, there are definitely health risks involved. BUT they just associate it with the 'scene' and think it's 'the cool thing to do', and don't understand what they're actually taking. Molly/ecstasy is NOT marijuana.

That's fucking lame (the fact that so many people openly ask for it)

its sad to think that we can put a drug on a podium like molly is. and this last part will happen eventually. hopefully for good.

yea exactly.. not even 20.. if they are eating them as much as ive realized itll be close to 5 years from now that they feel the damage that theyve done.. It literally does poke holes in your brain after just one time.

One of my buddies only tried it a few times but when he had a cat scan they could already see where it had damaged his brain.
