Beijing curbs disco to cramp "crazy" drug takers
Fri Jun 23, 7:41 AM ET
Beijing has banned disco and other dance music in private rooms of
nightclubs and karaoke bars to curb the flood of illegal drugs into
the capital's entertainment venues, Chinese newspapers reported
"Because many drug takers regularly dance and go crazy to upbeat
'disco' music in private rooms, police have specially requested
karaoke machines not have this music," the Beijing Times newspaper
Club owners were now expected to delete disco and "other forms of
vulgar entertainment" from karaoke machines in private rooms, the
Beijing News said, as part of a "responsibility agreement" written up
The agreement, signed by more than 1,100 club owners, is the latest
in a general crackdown on crime in nightlife venues launched this
month, prompted by a sharp rise in drug trafficking and violence
involving customers and staff.
The Beijing News said Thursday police were planning random urine
tests for employees at Beijing's clubs, citing employees' "addiction"
as a major source of drug trafficking.
