A rave party is a vibrant, all-night EDM gathering with immersive music, lighting, and a communal vibe. They're held in diverse locations, with farmhouses being a popular choice. In India, legal issues arise due to drug use, noise, safety, and public order violations, leading to government measures and bans on it.

What Is Snake Venom Addiction?

Snake venom addiction, also known as ophidism, is a dangerous and unusual form of substance abuse where individuals intentionally expose themselves to snake venom for recreational purposes.

This practice is incredibly risky, as snake venom varies in composition, and its effects can be unpredictable and potentially deadly. Long-term use can lead to physical and psychological dependence, making it a highly dangerous and life-threatening habit.
