In further party-casualty news from this past weekend, sixteen people were taken to the hospital after apparent drug overdoses during another Cow Palace dance music fest on Friday night. Two remained in critical condition as of yesterday.

This unfortunate event follows on a similar one involving the Cow Palace in June in which two of the partyers eventually died. It seems some bad MDMA-like shit is going around with these kids, possibly PMA (para-Methoxyamphetamine), or PMA-laced E tabs, or another drug masquerading as ecstasy. State Senator Leland Yee is blaming the venue for being "derelict in their responsibility" for policing these events.

We ask you: Have the drugs just gotten less predictable and nastier, or are the kids just not as good at taking them as they were back in our day?
