MiamiHerald / Drugs circulate the most at jam-band music festivals, topping rock, rap and country concerts.

Marijuana is the easiest thing to smuggle into a festival. A cheeky quarter of you are stashing drugs in your underwear – and nearly 90 percent are getting away with it. And EDM festivals, like Ultra, put you in the mood because one in four of you are getting busy – without protection – as the electronic music sizzles your synapses.

These are some of the findings in a new study by the Boca Raton-based Take 5 Media Group. The company did the study for Florida House Experience, a behavioral health treatment facility based in Deerfield Beach that works alongside the University of Miami, Florida International University, Barry University and other medical institutions, said Take 5’s media coordinator, Olivia Bitzonis.

The health center wanted to know what kind of drugs were being purchased at music festivals and from whom, which ones were being cut with potentially lethal additives, and how concert fans were hiding their habits.
