Here’s Which Drugs Are Most Popular At Each Major Festival

first_imgA new study reveals which drugs are most popular at which music festivals. The nonscientific study from DrugAbuse.com analyzes Instagram captions incorporating 15 different festivals, comparing drug-related references and content.The study focused on:BonnarooCamp BiscoGlastonburySummerfestElectric Daisy CarnivalBurning ManUltra Music FestivalChili Cook-OffCoachellaMad Decent Block PartyLollapaloozaHoly Ship!TomorrowlandLife In ColorMarley FestMany of the results were unsurprising, with Marley Fest taking the top spot for marijuana use, followed by Bisco and Bonnaroo. Chili Cook-Off took the cake for highest alcohol consumption, followed by Summerfest and Glastonbury. Burning Man received highest rankings in a grand total of 6 categories: DMT, Mushrooms, LSD, Crack Cocaine, Mescaline and General Drug Terms. MDMA, Molly and Ecstasy proved most prevalent at EDM-heavy fests Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and Camp Bisco.The study obviously doesn’t take into account a number of primary factors such as someone using a drug term in a song lyric or as a joke, rather than actually partaking. There’s also the vast majority of people who hopefully wouldn’t go incriminating themselves through social media. Regardless, the results are still very interesting…[via DrugAbuse]last_img read more

Abedi Pele downplays the need for a coaching certificate

first_imgGhana football legend Abedi Ayew Pele says he does not believe all coaches require a certificate to do the job successfully.The three-time African Footballer of the Year rates himself along the legendary German football icon, Franz Beckenbauer, who didn’t need a coaching license to lead Germany to the 1990 World Cup title in Italy.Pele, who led his Division One side Nania FC to an FA Cup triumph against premier league big boys, Asante Kotoko, made the submission in a chat with JOY Sports’ Nathaniel Attoh.“So what is called a qualified coach? I think that it is totally wrong. I enjoy what I am doing and I am doing it to the best of my knowledge. What really amazes me is how I continue to develop young talents, go to the grassroots and ensure that football is becoming great in our country.”The ex-Black Stars skipper was recently named FA Cup Coach of the Year after the triumph.last_img read more
