Raves are usually giant 'dance' parties. Huge lights and laser shows with a DJ, lots of neon and glowing stuff and a huge dance floor. Trance/techno/club music it usually played. No alcohol is served but drugs are really easy to optain (though not officially allowed, everyone has some or is willing to share or sell some for cheap). Typically everyone is on something except for the few who are really against taking drugs. Mostly E [Ecstasy aka 3 or 4-MethyleneDioxyMethamphetamine], Special K [special K is Ketamine, VERY BAD, used as a date-rape drug], there is also Ephedrine a 'legal' form of E supposedly, and GHB [another date-rape drug], then there is LSD and Magic Mushrooms. Those are the ones I see at the raves I go to. I don't buy because I like my brain functioning, some kids die or get brain damage from this stuff [though only once in a blue moon]. They have cool down tents and what not for the kids who over heat. The age range is usually 12-24, though I wish they'd keep it 16 and up insted. 12 year olds are do young to be showing at those.
Anyway what your friend means is those light up pacifiers are just glow toys raver chicks take to Raves. Since alot of people are on hallucinogens or feel-good drugs, every thing that glows just makes things alot funner, trippier. But the item itself is harmless... just a novelty item mostly used by Ravers... Teens take these to dances at schools and stuff so its not RAVE exclusive. Just because your kid wants to bring them with her doesn't mean she's going to go raving, or even has that in mind. Should be harmless, though might attract the wrong attention if she's out on the streets at night, but unlikely if she's 9. No worries k?
And Raves are different depending on what city you're in... maybe there are clean raves?? Does anyone out there go to any drug free raves? I've never seen any.
