Drugs and Dance music.

What percentage of people in decent clubs or events do you think do drugs like ecstasy etc or whatever the current thing is?

Perhaps this culture started with acid house parties in the 1980s but I've never been attracted to doing drugs at clubs or raves etc. Haven’t even been interested in doing drugs since my teens in the 1990s as I don't feel it enhances anything properly and having responsibilities and particularly responsibility to my ‘self’ is far more important. The risks make it seem so unwise (in my opinion) but so many adults do them.
Yes perhaps some have it to help them dance more but at the last trance event a yr ago i danced solid for around 6 hours with breaks because of my passion for trance.

And why ‘did or ‘does’ dance music attract drugs? The topic just doesn’t seem to be talked about these days

I tried it many years ago, an all that I can answer you: music and drug isnt really have connected at all. Good music is good music, drug is drug. Although drug is change the way you listen, not enhances music. It's just a lie. All you need to enhance your music is good/expensive speakers or headphones. Plus, you need to listen music on the right mood.

for me taking drugs to make yourself feel "good" or "better" at a rave or concert sort of defeats the purpose of going there.

If the effect of MDMA or weed or what have you works the same on my couch at home i can save half of my bankaccount on tickets, fuel/transport etc.

But research suggests that some drugs change the experience of listening to music. Clinical studies that have administered LSD to human volunteers have found that the drug enhances music-evoked emotion, with volunteers more likely to report feelings of wonder, transcendence, power and tenderness.

Sure, but then again, similar research suggests that the same levels of wonder, transcendence, exhaultation.. you name it, occur when sitting in a closed, silent room sitting across a friend and "having a good conversation"

When that, or watching a beautifull movie, or listening to music on the cough say, happens, basically what are know as your empathetic mirror neurons fire, giving you that "feeling of connection" joy etc. MDMA/ Drugs simply enhance that.

There isn't anything intrinsicly unique or different about say a rave, or other music festival when it comes to being the drug's catalist on that front (on a fundamental level that is, personal experiences can vary ofcourse :)

I bet one learns more from a conversation too. Nuerons are very interesting. Ive been researching neurological pathways. It would probably help so many stop habbits to understand the science behind them. NLP therapy definitely looks interesting. I think these neurological pathways really could be a key to achieving great things and stopping negative thought patterns but also creating brilliant scenarios for the likely direction of our thoughts.
