Tonight, people are dying, people went hungry, programs are closing down do to lack of funds, all over the United States. Millions of dollars are being wasted on closing down raves, as they kill a few people (who went there just for a good time, and most of whom who know the dangers of any subtance they make take). Honest club owners are just trying to save peoples lives.
Goverment is meant to protect people from the irresponsible actions of others, but not from themselves. Goverment should be protecting peoples rights, and setting an example for a standard of responsiblity for the world.
Responsibilty is something a person takes on their own. Goverment can't instil responsiblity into a person. The same is true with morals and values. Their something a person develops on their own. If the people they look up to are responsible, smart and do the right thing at all times, they will likely follow that pattern.
You can't legislative morality. Every attempt has failed to do this. You can only educate and show leadership to end this problem. And some people will still use drugs, but some people will always engage in dangerous behaviours -- it's a dangerous world out there -- and even with every procaution -- it's still a dangerous world. Goverment nor anyone should think we can get every dangerous situation elimated -- it won't happen.
