Illegal rave packages in India include MDMA and Hashish
Get a little extra with the special rave packages deal!
As if the Indian rave scene isn’t under enough strain following the recent crack-down on raves held on the beaches of Goa, now people are getting caught for selling these ‘rave packages.’
It’s like with everything: Things are all hunky dory until people get greedy and get stupid; and then what? We are busy losing the birth place of the psychedelic movement.
The recent crack-down in Goa is due to an increased consumption of narcotics that authorities are trying to curb by shutting down late-night raves. You can read more about that here.
It actually seems like authorities want to completely stop the rave culture in India and move away from the ‘rave stigma.’
And now people have been caught selling tour packages that include drugs.
A package to rave about!
In Kochi, India, recent arrests revealed a collective of drug smugglers who have broadened their ‘industry’ by marrying their business of drugs with the business of tourism in a “passenger transport and package tour operations” manoeuvre.
A spokesperson from the city police revealed how they recently arrested two people in possession of Hashish and MDMA, who told stories of how they organised illegal “rave trips for youngsters” to hotspots like Bengaluru, Goa and Coimbatore.
He revealed: “The duo recently sent a group of students from a private law college on the city outskirts to Goa for 25,000 rupees per head. Each tourist was entitled to two grams of MDMA, five grams of hashish, three packets of ganja, besides entry tickets to a rave party, accommodation facilities, and return tickets.”
It would be a brilliant business model, if drugs were legal- which they definitely aren’t, no matter how much people want it to be.
5 men were also recently arrested, in a separate incident after attending a rave in Goa. They were apparently also returning from a similar trip organised by the same drug racket.
This rave package deal might be over sooner than you think with these police.
