GHB, Ice : a gay club in Melbourne takes action

In Melbourne, gay clubbers who attend Poof Doof, one of the most popular gay parties in the city now know what to expect: those who will be caught with GHB or ICE (methamphetamine) will be banned from the club for life. Even worse, they will be listed in a database shared by dozens of other venues accross Australia, and therefore also banned for life from all these places.

This drastic measure was announced by Poof Doof on their Facebook page on Monday, in capital letters: "After seeing how these horrific drugs have affected our community, poof doof has decided to take action. Far be it from us to tell you what to do - we’re not the fun police - but we are putting our foot down with regards to what goes on whilst you’re all in our care on saturday nights".

The message continues, unambiguously: "Our venue staff and security will be assisting us to identify, eject and ban those individuals who have not heeded out warning. Make no mistake: we are serious. And the lifetime bans will be irreversible."

Will this initiative give ideas to other gay party promoters around the world, facing the  same issues?
