Most of us agree that illegal drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, or heroine are bad for the body and can cause horrific addictions. But what about i-dosing, the supposed “computer high” that kids are getting from listening to certain types of music on their computers? It probably sounds as ridiculous to you as it does to me, but parents, teachers, and even the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics are up in arms over the new trend.

“I-dosing” involves putting on headphones and listening to binaural, or two-tone technology, that supposedly alters your brain waves and mental state. According to the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, the sounds induce the same kind of mind-altering effects as marijuana, cocaine, peyote, and opium. Mark Woodward, the spokesman for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, recently argued that:

“Kids are going to flock to these sites just to see what it is about and it can lead them to other places. If you want to reach these kids and save these kids and keep these kids safe, parents have to be aware, and they’ve got to take action."

While all the fuss might seem a little much for some of us, Oklahoma’s Mustang High School recently sent home letters to parents warning them of the dangers of i-dosing. But school officials and safety officials aren’t the only ones worried about the new trend. In fact, some students are worried that the music contains “demons”. However, Dr. Helane Wahbeh, a Naturopathic Physician and Clinician Researcher at the Oregon Health and Science University recently told NPR that:

"Binaural beats happen when opposite ears receive two different sound waves. When you listen to these sounds with stereo headphones, the listener senses the difference between the two frequencies as another beat that sounds like it’s coming from the inside of the head."

In other words, i-dosing is pretty harmless and has also been used to treat anxiety, PMS, and to even help cure addictions.

    This is just a way to use mind control on the mass population via internet. I’ve been researching energy waves and ELF(extremely low frequencies) for a while now and found that the human body can be affected by ELF and the US gov’t conducted tests with these ELF for mind control from 1960-present. There is a large amount of evidence that ELF magnetic waves can affect brain waves. These binaural waves start off with ELF. And for a "website" to offer sound waves that can "POWERFULLY ALTER YOUR MOOD" (idoser website), is a very dangerous concept. I’ve watched the videos of the kids trying it and the "gates of Hades" "dose" makes perople freak out ad think that they are seeing "hell", "satan" and dismembered bodies. When i see this all i can think is MIND CONTROL. Watch the videos for yourself (pref the "gates of Hades". These kids look like their having seizures. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT ELF WAVES CAN DO. GOOGLE "haarp", "tesla" and "project bluebeam" after you read that, think about what these binaural waves can do to your brain and think about how long the GOVT has known about this. These mind altering waves can also be transmitted thru the air to the masses. IM NOT KIDDING, RESEARCH FOR YOURSELF. this should be illegal but it wont be because its a big experiment.

    Please, do not joke about this! This has been a year of sheer HELL! I started off just listening to a little Massive Attack and Portishead after work to "lighten my mood", then a co-worker introduced me to i-dosing. Within just a few months, I found myself buying ecstacy at a rave to get a bigger high. Many rolls later, the x just wasnt plentiful enough, so I turned to meth. Soon I was robbing empty stores and selling crack to children to get money for my fix. It was just a matter of time before I got caught. Im out on bail now, lost my kid, probably going to prison for the next ten years, and just wanted to warn others of this DANGEROUS, ADDICTIVE GATEWAY DRUG! Parents should be aware of the terrible danger their kids are in. Many kids turn to prostitution to fund their growing addiction. We need to at least regulate this to keep it away from our children! CONTACT YOUR GOVERNOR! Show others the VIDEO EVIDENCE of the horrible side-effects your children suffer! The damage can last a lifetime!

    "Most of us agree that illegal drugs such as marijuana.... are bad for the body"? Really, who are "MOST OF US"? You mean the people who actually listen to the DEA spew inaccurate information due to the Democrats in Utah who where racist during the 1930's, who just happen to say "We can't have these dirty Mexicans smoking this stuff", you do know that the UNITED STATES made growing hemp mandatory before the Utah thing went down right? Marijuana has been and will continue to be a medicinal medication for years to come. I mean we've found marijuana stashed in a cemetery that dates back 4000 years. That would be Before Christ! We already know there is not enough scientific evidence to show it's harmful to the body, the only evidence we have is Politicians saying so. That is not evidence to me? You would think with Healthcare, we would have legalized marijuana. Sure would be cheaper than using any FDA regulated “KILLER” medicine.

    DarthCest: you must work for the DOJ or one of the narcotics bureaus that seek to "regulate" sound.

    you are full of crap, and if this tipped the scale for you to go seek drugs at a club, then you were unstable to begin with.

    these sounds have been used for a long time to promote meditation and put one in peaceful states of consciousness. these tones have also been used by psycological institutions to treat a variety of illnesses.

    this is no different than native americans acheving religious or altered states with rythmic drumming. drone instruments are vital in eastern indian music as well as others.

    are you wanting to outlaw a f**kin didgeridoo? get a grip looser.
