parties are great, music is awesome... the drugs are not.
My neighbor, 21, greatest guy you'll ever want to meet, was at a party. Someone dosed his drink. An hour later he was in the back of an ambulance flat lining. They brought him back.
A half hour later, he was in the ER talking to his Mom, and boom, he went down--coded. Again, they brought him back.
He was lucky to be alive.
Two other people were dosed that night at two different parties. And yes, it happens all the time.
The drugs are illegal, there's no control in purity, or in what they are made with. You never know who is going to give you what.
If what you are there for is the dancing and the music, the getting together with other people, then there is no need for the drugs. None. No one is holding you back from celebrating what you love in that case.
