According to a News 9 segment, 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…..

Kids around the country are getting high on the internet, thanks to MP3s that induce a state of ecstasy. And it could be a gateway drug leading teens to real-world narcotics.At least, that’s what Oklahoma News 9 is reporting about a phenomenon called “i-dosing,” which involves finding an online dealer who can hook you up with “digital drugs” that get you high through your headphones.

I-dosing involves donning headphones and listening to “music” – largely a droning noise – which the sites peddling the sounds promise will get you high. Teens are listening to such tracks as “Gates of Hades,” which is available on YouTube gratis (yes, the first one is always free). 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.

Binaural MP3s are nothing new. In fact, you can get several iPhone applications that promise a better sex drive simply by listening to an audio file daily. But does i-dosing really work? While there are YouTube videos “proving” that it does (see below), when I tried it all I ended up with was irritation that I’d wasted a good 10 minutes of my life. During a News 9 interview, Mark Woodward (video above), spokesman for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, also said that it does not work with everyone (unlike real drugs). The may concern is that this might be the channel for impressionable teens to try illegal substances.

Kansas’ Mustang Public School district isn’t taking the threat lightly, and sent out a letter to parents warning them of the new craze. The educators have gone so far as to ban iPods at school, in hopes of preventing honor students from becoming cyber-drug fiends, News 9 reports.

We at Threat Level are stunned and have hundreds of questions.

Will future presidential candidates defend their I-dosing past by saying, “But I had it on mute”? Are we supposed to declare a war on cyber-drugs or a cyber-war on cyber drugs? How will police know if a teen is with headphones on is I-dosing or just listening to Justin Bieber? Is the iPod the bong of the future? What would happen if some ne’er do well took over the console of the Super Bowl and dosed the entire country? What if kids smoked dried banana peels and listened to these trippy tunes at the same time – could they O.D.? What happens if someone sells a tainted MP3?

But some try it and never do it again. One YouTube user says: “I wouldn´t recommend this I-doser. You really don’t feel that well after doing it. Don’t do it.”Studies show the tones do not chemically alter the brain, but parents and educators fear digital drugs will lead to something more harmful, and illegal.

Some say I-dosing is a big online hoax, but others believe more research needs to be done on the effects of digital drugs.
