Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Freebeacon.com: “Feds Spend $2.9 Million Studying EDM Clubs”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The National Institutes of Health is spending $3 million investigating the goings on at electronic dance music clubs.

The Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, a nonprofit group based in Maryland, is leading the study, which aims to curb clubgoers from getting drunk, doing drugs, and other "unsafe" behaviors.

"This project targets young, working adults who frequent clubs that feature Electronic Music Dance Events (EMDE) and engage in high risk behaviors," according to the grant for the project. "These high risk behaviors are excessive alcohol use, drug use, physical and/or sexual aggression, and unsafe behaviors upon exiting from clubs. The research would test a brief, group-based intervention to reduce these high risk behaviors common in clubs."

The study is explicitly focusing on "excessive alcohol use, drug use, physical and/or sexual aggression."

The goals of the study are to be able to accurately assess a group of clubgoers' risk level and provide people who club together "with tools to protect their members."
