If you’re a parent, you probably grew up in the days when marijuana was a popular drug of choice among teens. More than likely you are familiar with all the other drugs that were around when you were a kid, like cocaine, meth, and others. You may be using your own knowledge to talk to your kids about drugs to keep them from the dangers that illegal drugs can represent.

Today, with the technology of the internet at their fingertips, many teens are getting involved in what is known as i-dosing. Here is a closer look at this threat to your children, which can be just as dangerous as taking real drugs.

How Does I-Dosing Work?
You are probably wondering what i-dosing is and how it really work. Basically it involves your child going to a specific website, putting on headphones, and then listening to a type of music. Usually this music is loud and droning. These audio files are usually two-toned and they are designed to alter the brain waves, just like other drugs can do. All you have to do is check out YouTube and do a search of “idoser,” which brings up pages of different videos. One popular track that is often used for i-dosing is “Gates of Hades,” which is a track easily found on YouTube for free. When users listen to these tracks, supposedly it alters the mental state bringing about a “state of ecstasy.” Many times users of these tracks are encouraged to purchase a guide to using mp3s to properly get high with them.
