Teenagers use so-called ‘digital drugs’ (music) to change their brains in the same way as real-life narcotics.
This is the world of ‘i-Dosing’, the new craze sweeping the Internet in which teenagers used so-called ‘digital drugs’ (music) to change their brains in the same way as real-life narcotics.
They believe the repetitive drone-like music will give them a ‘high’ that takes them out of reality, only legally available and downloadable on the Internet.
I-Dosing tracks have imposing names such as ‘Gates of Hades’ or ‘Hand of God’ which are ten minutes long - some sound like a ship’s horn being repeated again and again whilst others are more abrasive and resemble cheap synthesizers being played very fast.
Not everyone is taking i-Dosing seriously, but since it could indicate a willingness to experiment with real drugs, warnings have been issued in some parts of the US to prevent children to do it.
