Argentina medial society backs government official’s opposition to drug parties

.- The Society of Medical and Biological Ethics of Argentina announced its support this week for the Health Minister of the Buenos Aires province, Claudio Mate, who is opposing the so-called “Raves” parties during which hundreds of young people consume illegal drugs.

In a statement, the Society said Mate’s position is one that benefits the health of young people, who attend the Raves parties and suffer irreparable harm from drug use.

The Society also denounced “the owners of the locals where these parties are held for shutting off drinking fountains and forcing kids to buy alcoholic beverages or mineral water at exorbitant prices.”

“This is the sad reality of some of the survivors of the tragedy at the Republica Cromañon disco on December 30, 2004, who said there was no water in the building,” the statement noted.  On that occasion, dozens of young people were killed after a fire broke out.

The Society also pointed out the grave dangers of mixing drugs and alcohol, noting that in some cases it can cause serious health problems and even death.
