California venue bans rave-type events because of drug and alcohol-related illnesses, fatalities

Cow Palace, a Daly City, CA facility that hosts electronic music/dance parties, will be shut down for an unspecified period of time due to a high number of recent drug/alcohol overdoses.

About three weeks ago, according to the article "Cow Palace bans rave-type shows after drug-related deaths," which was written by Neil Gonzales and published on at 11:28 p.m. last night (Nov. 16), "more than a dozen people attending a show (. . .) fell ill because of suspected drug and alcohol use and were sent to hospitals, with two reportedly in critical condition."

Gonzales also reports two deaths having resulted from these drug/alcohol overdoses in the past year.
