Digital Drugs

Word on the street ... or rather the mainstream media... is that kids around the country are getting high on the internet. Specifially, MP3s that induce a state of intoxication. Those who want to try the drugs can purchase tracks that purportedly bring about the same effects of reefer, peyote, shrooms, opium, and the like. You can also try healing, awakening, sexual, or religious experiences. So-called digital drugs combine two tones, one played in each ear, to create binaural beats that allegedly alter brain waves. Users are also advised to buy a 40-page manual so that they learn how to properly get high. ... Ahem.
