Multiple arrests, various drugs seized at local music festival

Music festivals are events where people gather to have fun and enjoy music. This is expected to be a venue for people who have the same interests to meet and exchange thoughts, and perhaps, be friends. But this is not the first time to hear about such event being turned into a venue for drug use and selling. Since such events are often attended by younger people, it’s the youth that often becomes the victim.
