think about it. They're the ones running around raves like they own it and

This style originated from the
ecstacy dealers when the rave scene first began. The dealer would wear the style
and since they were bright and easy to spot, all the ravers would know that they
had ecstacy. Over time, the style caught on and began to be regular rave attire.

No. Like any other person, drug
usage varies from raver to raver. You don't have to take drugs to be a Candy
