pontius pilate on a pogo stick, when the hell are they going to quit that?
First of all, when a drug and a scene is the impetus of a major motion picture by a well known movie studio, the "underground menace" of it is officially dead.
On the other hand, it would be nice if they would get their drug facts straight at ALL when they have these shows. Or if they would ever talk to someone who isn't a parent advocate, didn't get raped at a massive, hasn't taken Ketamine instead of mdma, hasn't been rushed to the emergency room for heat stroke...
Talk to ONE PERSON who uses and has no problems and ask why and how.
They'll all tell you the same thing. They know and trust their supplier. They drink a lot of water. They make sure they don't get over heated. They take care of themselves. They're educated about the side effects and they know how to combat them.
Oh, and they don't tend to roll 4 nights a week, every week for a year so they don't end up with a permanent inability to produce serotonin.
People who are stupid about drugs say stupid things about drugs. Unfortunately, those are the stupid people who end up on stupid shows screaming about brain damage and death. Alcohol, in my opinion, is a more detrimental and insidious threat to people and their health than a drug that was manufactured for the purpose of making people comfy and trusting enough to open up about their problems.
And don't even get me started on the popular myths about acid and its use and users.
