Digital Drugs: How Teens Are Using The Internet To Get High (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/07/15/digital-drugs-get-teens-h_n_647397.html)

A new online craze has young people getting high off of "digital drugs," Kansas News 9 reports.

The trend, called i-Dosing, is a supposedly "legal" and "safe" way to alter one's consciousness.

According to Kansas News 9, these "digital drugs" use "binaural, or two-toned, technology to alter your brain waves and mental state," producing a "state of ecstasy" for the user. i-Dosers listen to these atonal tracks while sitting motionless with headphones on.

It may sound benign, but parents, educators and law officials are worried that i-Dosing could be addictive, harmful, and a gateway "drug" to other illegal substances.

The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs has taken an interest in the phenomenon. "Kids are going to flock to these sites just to see what it is about," the Bureau's spokesperson Mark Woodward told Kansas News 9, "and it can lead them to other places."

I-Dosing tracks like "Gate of Hades" can be found on YouTube and give listeners a free taste for i-Dosing. But Wired.com reports that free samples may be the beginning of a hard-to-kick habit:

Those who want to get addicted to the "drugs" can purchase tracks that will purportedly bring about the same effects of marijuana, cocaine, opium and peyote. While street drugs rarely come with instruction manuals, potential digital drug users are advised to buy a 40-page guide so that they learn how to properly get high on MP3s.
Psychology Today counters that binaural beats have been used therapeutically to treat anxiety and does not consider i-Dosing a danger to kids.


Heard of this?

TRIED this?

Does it even work?

The drug purportedly affected an area of the brain called "Shatner's Bassoon" (altering your perception of time), can give you a bloated neck due to "massive water retention" (allegedly known in the then non-existent Czechoslovakia as "Czech Neck") and was frequently referred to as "a made-up drug" (a drug, they were told, not made from plants but made up from chemicals).

From an I-drug user to a cocaine user? That's quite the leap!

Binaural apps for the iPhone have been around for quite a while- I'm sure they've been on the net much longer.

They're typical used for sleep and meditation, though some are used to "focus" for studying, etc. I'm an insomniac and thus have tried EVERYTHING, and I didn't really notice much of an effect on the sleep end of the spectrum. But it's definitely something you can feel-- though I think if it were sped up I'd just feel nauseated.
