Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houston voice.com AUGUST 2,2002 natioi Biden open to amending RAVE ACT, continued from Page 1 "I suspect they'll bend, and we'll get a better bill in the Senate," Piper said. Biden might also be receptive, but because it's his bill. Piper said. "He takes the issue personally, really," he said. The bill caught rave and gay circuit party organizers and clubs by surprise, prompting an outcry from opponents who said that the act would unfairly hold business operators responsible for the actions of some patrons. The bill, which Biden introduced June 18, would amend the federal anti-drug statute known as the Crack House Act. That law allows prosecutors to file criminal and civil charges against owners of buildings that can be show to "knowingly" allow drug use and sales on their premises. The RAVE Act would "prohibit an individual from knowingly opening, maintaining, managing, controlling, renting, leasing, making available for use, or profiting from any place for the purpose of manufacturing, distributing or using any controlled substance." The bill is "too broadly written," Piper said, and by targeting rave events, the matter becomes a free speech issue. Even by calling it the RAVE Act, the bill singles out a particular form of self-expression, Piper said. Depending on how the bill is enforced, he said, business owners and promoters could face jail time and fines for the actions of people who attend rave parties. The bill could lead club owners to take steps from eliminating so-called "chill rooms" or stopping techno music, "anything that they think prosecutors aren't going to like." Piper described the DPA as the nation's largest drug policy organization. It aims to seek "alternatives to the war on drugs" by emphasizing treatment and harm reduction programs. He acknowledged but did not defend the use of drugs by some who attend rave parties. "People definitely use drugs at raves," Piper said. "But they use drugs at all sorts of events." He said he did not believe drugs are any more prevalent at raves than at other large dance parties.
