37,129.  I told the Relief Society of secret underground drug parties that go by the name of Rave.  Here with flashing lights and noisy music, if it can be called that, young men and women dance and sway.  They sell and buy drugs.  The drugs are called Ecstasy.  They are a derivative of methamphetamine.  The dancers suck on babies’ pacifiers because the drug makes them grind their teeth.  The hot music and the sultry dancing ...
