Reader: Rave-goers want Molly and designer drugs, not weed and potato chips

In our photo post spotlighting Canna-Rave, touted as the "first-ever all-cannabis rave," we noted that attendance at the unusual event was rather modest.

A number of our readers weren't surprised by that, including this one.

Dono Lindstrom writes:

Probably not a huge turnout because the rave scene is saturated in Molly and designer drugs, not weed. No one at a rave, if they are consuming drugs, wants to just chill in the corner and munch out on potato chips. Not saying that it was a failure of an event, but I just dont see "canna-raves" becoming a thing.
