Have you ever done a Google search and poked around at the world of raving sober? You're either going to find (small) organizations that are patting on the back those out there who love dance music but don't particularly drop pills to get their dance on, or you're going to see forums pondering why someone would even put the words "rave" and "sober" together. And we wonder why the media has a field day when a raver OD's. We can't expect the corporate factions to put a good face on the EDM scene, as they're just looking to put some good-faced bills in their pockets.
