The "free and legal" MP3s are actually not music; they're more like a droning sound or white noise. The audio promises to get listeners high just as they would from drugs like marijuana, cocaine, opium and more. There's even a 40-page guide available so that users can learn how to experience the effects properly.
To get these "digital drugs," teens are reportedly hitting to the Internet to look for online dealers, a curiosity that Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs spokesman Mark Woodward says put the "i-dosers" in danger of worse dangers. "Kids are going to flock to these sites just to see what it is about and it can lead them to other places," he claims.
Some may think the digital drug concept is ridiculous, but Oklahoma's Mustang Public School district isn't taking any chances. They've sent letters to parents informing them about the trend and have even banned iPods at school. What do you think of the craze? Is it serious or silly?
