California Assemblywoman Realizes She Can't Just Ban A Genre of Music

That totally sounds like an Onion headline, but no, this is for real: Because of the death of a 15-year-old girl at the Electric Daisy Carnival, a California assemblywoman was trying hard to ban any future rave performances from happening in California.

“We found out later on that, constitutionally, you can not ban a type of music,” she told Reason.TV.
