i-Dosing: Coming to an iPod near you?

Published 2010-07-24

In the 50s it was refer, then every 10 years came something new: LSD, Cocaine, Crack, Ecstasy and who knows what in the 2000s.

In 2010? mp3s!

According to a report posted earlier this month on wired.com, teenagers around the country are listening to mp3 files that "induce a state of ecstasy."

Wired's report is based on a televised story from Kansas News 9 which called the experience “i-dosing.”

"(It) involves finding an online dealer who can hook you up with “digital drugs” that get you high through your headphones."

If I remember right, we listen to music for the rush and euphoria associated with the tones created by various instruments.

So is there nothing to see here?
