Leave it to teenagers to discover another bizarre way to get "high."
Experts are warning parents about digital drugs, also known as "i-dosers," NewsOK in Oklahoma reports.
I-Dosers work like this: You put on headphones and download music and tones that create a supposed drug-like euphoria (options include "alcohol," "opium," "marijuana" and "orgasm.") The technology is designed to combine a tone in each ear to create a binaural beat designed to alter brainwaves.
While there are no known neurological effects from digital drugs, they encourage kids to pursue mood-altering substances, Karina Forrest-Perkins, chief operating officer of Gateway to Prevention and Recovery in Shawnee, told NewsOK.
Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control spokesman Mark Woodward told NewsOK he believes the i-dosing effect is likely just a placebo.
We can think of a lot worse things that kids can do -- but it's a little alarming that people are trying to market a digital "high" to teens.
