PLEASE. DANCE. SAFE...

Electric Daisy Carnival
On Sunday i was browsing twitter, reading the aftermath of EDC.
At least 1 death and 30 people hospitalised for drug, alcohol and heat-related illnesses...

Skrillex hit the nail on the head for me... "I'm not one to force my ideals onto other people but I just wanted to say one thing: Please take care of yourselves and STOP getting completely fucked out of your mind on all of these drugs. Be responsible, have an amazing time but don't kill yourself in the process. I really do care about people and it makes me upset to see this sort of thing happening."

E is supposed to be a fun drug, you just stay hydrated, don’t take too much and keep up the good vibes.

Here’s some rules:

drink water...
The recommended amount of water to drink is bottle for every hour of dancing. Remember: sip, don’t gulp. Do not drink too much water.

avoid alcohol...
It increases body temperature, makes the kidneys work much harder and gives a much worse come-down. Almost all Ecstasy-related deaths have involved alcohol.

take breaks...
rising body temperature is the most dangerous physical aspect of Ecstasy use. Take regular breaks from dancing to cool down. If possible, go outside.

watch the dose...
never take more than two pills, less if you are female and / or you have a small build. Never take two at the same time. The more MDMA you take, the more likely you are to suffer from overheating, neurotoxic effects and memory impairment.

don’t mix pills...
Avoid mixing pills in the same session to reduce the chance of impurity interactions, or being flattened by two pills with radically different strengths

drink fruit juices...
They are more efficient in replacing lost nutrients. Avoid fizzy drinks as they can cause nausea.

take Vitamin C...
It’s an antioxidant and will prevent MDMA neurotoxicity.

avoid ‘diet’ drinks...
In fact, any drink containing artificial sweeteners (such as aspartame). They contain phenylaline, a substance which increases the neurotoxicity of MDMA.

get pills tested using a testing kit...
Many users lick pills before buying them in an attempt to identify the taste, but speed and MDMA have almost identical tastes. You can find out about testing kits here.

keep groups of friends together...
This should be done especially among inexperienced users. Also, be prepared to talk people through bad times.

leave time between regular Ecstasy use...
At least a one-month gap between Ecstasy use is advisable, although a two- or three-month break is much more preferable. This will help keep your tolerance levels down and products like Onnit Rollin can help your body recover.

Please. Dance. Safe.
