I always had this feeling there was something more going on at 69 and at Myst than it seems. After a while, the club started attracting A LOT of people for some reason and I was honestly not very surprised to have read this story.

Personally, I feel these two clubs have always been bad news, in particular because of the type of crowd it began attracting after Blu was closed down and 69 started playing mainstream Hip-hop almost entirely. Don't get me wrong; I'm not knockin' on the entire genre because I love Underground Hip-hop, but the type of crowd the mainstream stuff attracts is infested with bad apples.

I was recently at Republic, which is right across from Myst. We were hanging out in the patio and saw an extremely long line to get into Myst and 69. Ironically, our party joked about it, asking ourselves if they were giving candy away, and now that this story broke, they probably were. Hmmm...

This is exactly why I laugh when the republican party calls themselves "capitalists". In a true capitalist society, like the ones the Libertarian Party preaches, the government not only stays out of business, they stay out of our personal lives. With capitalism, there would be not such thing has government bailouts, tax cuts for corporations, and the DEA and ICE.

Enforcement efforts are wasted arresting nonviolent people for a safer choice. Educate the powerful: https://secure.downsizedc.org/etp/campaigns/9...

Now is the time for American lovers to unite and insist American warriors get their adrenaline rush catching murderers and other violent predators. Regulation, science based education and treating abuse as a medical problem is a better drug policy that increases public safety and harm reduction.

All the unnecessary deaths triggered by our drug policies and terror policies are democide (death by government). Servants of tyranny play on our fears to make us more accepting of their waste of our precious lives and resources.

Users of drugs and the drugs themselves are not responsible for this violence. Users and drugs have been on this planet for eons without bloodbaths. Prohibition triggers the violence and official lawlessness. Change to a better drug policy.

All this is fine and dandy but will the crackdowns continue? I can remember the crack downs in the strip joints. They are back to business as usual. How about the teen clubs? They are back to business as usual. This is just a cycle that will continue. As long as there is a demand for this it will continue. Get rid of the demand and the supply will have no where to go. I don't have the answer to how this can be done but someone must. Put your heads together and maybe we all can stop this. Any ideas?

What's wrong with your position is that no matter what, the borders should be enforced.

It's about time something is done about these Mexicans and their drug trafficking, trying to destroy the USA. Let them make their drugs legal in Mexico, let them all become drug addicts.

For some reason, I bet you want enforcement over things like pirated music CDs, those too are smuggled over the border, and you can get music CDs 3 for $5 from a Mexican flea market here. Why not allow the open border to be used to bring in cheap cigarettes?

You'd still have to control the border and the Mexican drug traffickers. Only for some reason, they've been allowed to control the border.
