The Los Angeles Field Division and District Office worked hand-in-hand with area leaders to combat ecstasy. On March 17th and 18th, the group sponsored Operation X-Out - Dancing With Darkness. The event, held at the University of Las Vegas, consisted of a Youth Town Hall Meeting and a daylong information seminar. Rogelio Guevara, DEA Chief of Operations and Daniel Bogden, United States Attorney for Nevada highlighted the events. Additionally, a strong supporter of the DEA's efforts, Nevada Assemblywoman Sharron E. Angle, was in attendance. Guest speaker Lynn Smith provided the most effective presentation during the two-day event. Smith, featured on an MTV special that chronicles her experiences with ecstasy, spoke passionately to a captive audience about the danger ecstasy poses.
