Drugs just got a lot cheaper and weirder. There’s a new trend among young kids that involves listening to two-toned audio files that can alter your brain waves and even produce the same effects as marijuana and alcohol. Yes, you’ve been wasting your money all this time! We kid, we kid.
According to Time magazine:
A quick YouTube search for “idoser” turns up pages of videos, some of which have hundreds of thousands of page views. One video shows three boys after they “take a hit” of digital drugs said to induce hard laughing and shaking (and, unless these boys are faking it, they do). Other videos show I-dosers laughing incessantly on nitrous and seemingly tormented by an I-dose of Gates of Hades.
Though the websites tout the downloads as a safe, legal way to get high, the digital drugs have parents crying “gateway.” Concerns that I-dosing could lead to experimentation with other drugs has lead to the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics issuing a warning to parents. “Kids are going to flock to these sites to see what it’s about and it can lead them other places,” one official warned.
Good luck being a parent in 2020……
