Re "County targets drug use at events," Aug. 5

I attend raves and music festivals in Hawaii ( where Iama student) 
and Los Angeles. I feel very safe at the music events. All provide 
thorough security, but there is no way the organizers can prevent 
attendees from taking drugs in the parking lot or while standing in line.

It's ludicrous for Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis to 
demand stronger measures. Political posturing is the headlining act here.

These two women didn't die from a stage collapsing or stampeding 
fans. They died from taking drugs. It was a personal decision that 
the Hard Summer organizers could not have prevented.

Let's concentrate on the thousands of other people who attended the 
festival and didn't overdose.
