Are Teens Using The Internet To Get High?

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.

Do You Think "Digital Drugs" Are Dangerous?

I believe the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics... spokesman. More than likely, any "high" derived from listening to the sounds is a placebo.

For starters, how long does the high last? Does it perhaps last as long as the euphoria one feels when their favourite song is playing, or the spark of excitement when receiving a present? Both of these are cases when an outside stimulant causes your brain chemicals to alter, producing an emotional response.

But if I have read this correctly then you are telling me there is a physically harmless and easily accessible drug out there? Plus it's auditory so no smoking, needles snorting...none of that? Cheers for ther tip, I'm Googling it as we speak. Here comes fun! :D

I tried it and I have to tell you it was kind of ridiculous. I spent three dollars on a product called 'absinthe' which only irritated me severely and gave me a mild headache. I also tried the two free sounds the player come with named 'content' and 'alcohol'. Both were relaxing but not to the point where I would imagine it was like a high induced relaxation. You'll be much better off drinking a few energy drinks and then snorting pixie snicks as you would cocaine. (Yes I do this and yes doing such a thing could eventually lead to a hole inside of your nasal passage and internal deterioration.)

There is not a set of beats that can induce drug affects. It is all the power of suggestion, to which the young are particularly sensitive to.

It seems a bit ridiculous to me, but if my teen was going to get 'high'..I'd prefer he do it this way since it's legal and physically harmless. Besides, I seriously doubt that it works.

These alpha and theta wave technologies have been around for many years and were used in department stores to promote everything from buyer's impulse to limiting the shoplifters impulse from fear. The latest use have been incorporated into police cars and actual battlefield designs and are capable of creating everything from panic to the sensation of debilitating pain throughout the subjects body. The problem with the teenagers as with ganga wouldn't be if but why and if they are trying to use these methods avoid or hide from negative circumstances in their life. Escapism while fun and often times rewarding can cause issues when combined with the avoidance of real issues that need to be addressed.

<!-- It is not a drug. It is called binaural beats and they are supposed to put you in some sort of mood/trance/lucid dream.

The theory is that slightly dischordant sounds, i.e. a tone at a certain frequency in one ear, and a tone of slightly different frequency in the other ear will create something called a binaural beat. Some people have claimed that your brain will sync it's wave frequencies with those of the beat. So far as I've seen, every research study I've seen has shown no effect on brain waves from binaural beats.
A good interview on the subject was done on All things considered:

Digital drugs have been around far longer than the internet has been, though it has been going under a different name: Music.

Because they're supposed create a variety of feelings, from calming to happiness.
They're not /really/ like ecstasy or whatever.
It's for meditation and relaxation, etc.
Personally, when I tried to listen to them for relaxation, nothing changed, at least noticeably, for me.

Did you ever see how mello a dog or cat gets listening to Classical music? Maybe we should ban Mozart and Bach. Then we can start banning words and ideas. Obama himself said that too much information can cause mental confusion. Let's just ban everything and hook everyone up to a giant, government run computer like in the Matrix.

I think it's a load of horse apples. The kids feel high because they've been told the tones will make them high.

Maybe 0.1% of kids will act out, but they will damn sure hit the news, and naturally all adults will freak out over it. The rate of crime is maybe, just maybe, over covered on the news these days.
