Black Rock City, NV – Music festivals have grown in popularity over the past several years, and to some extent, these events have provided a safe haven for people to party and enjoy themselves. However, these situations have naturally created a target for police who are seeking to generate revenue through drug arrests.
This vacation season, art and music festivals are going to be a honeypot for police, who have announced that they will be strongly targeting some of the biggest events in the country, including the legendary Burning Man, which takes place in the deserts of Nevada each year.
Burning Man has become one of the most targetted events by police over the years, and the Bureau of Land Management, the federal police force tasked with patrolling the event, has recently announced that they will be drug testing people who will be driving in and out of the event.
According to a press release in last month’s “Federal Register,” the BLM announced that they will be drug testing drivers to see if they are under the influence, and they will even be testing for marijuana despite the fact that it is now legal in the state of Nevada
