Beware of binaural beats. It seems to be demonic.
MUSTANG, Oklahoma – I-dosing on “digital drugs” is becoming an alarming new trend amongst teens.
Web sites are luring kids with free downloads of “digital drugs,” which are audio files designed to induce drug-like effects. The sites claim it is a safe and legal way to get high, but parents fear it could lead to illegal drug use.
Videos of teenagers trying digital drugs are all over YouTube, leaving parents, educators and law enforcement officials with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs concerned.
“Kids are going to flock to these sites just to see what it is about and it can lead them to other places,” said OBNDD spokesperson Mark Woodward.
The digital drugs use binaural or two-toned technology to alter your brainwaves and mental state.
“Well it’s just scary, definitely scary. Just one more thing to look out for,” said parent Kelly Johnson.
Recently Mustang Public Schools sent out a letter warning parents about the new trend after several high school students reported having physiological effects after trying one of these digital downloads. Students and graduates are still talking about it.
“*I heard it was like some weird demons and stuff through an iPod and he was like freaking out*,” said Mustang High School student Meghan Edwards.
“People do need to be concerned about it. It’s not just something that should be overlooked,” said Shelbi Reed, Mustang High School graduate.
“We had never come across anything like this and anything that is going to cause these physiological effects in a student, that causes us concern,” said Shannon Rigsby, Mustang Public Schools Communication Officer.
Mustang schools are doing what they can to put a stop to it, including cracking down on the use of cell phone and other technology while on campus.
The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics said parental awareness is key to preventing future problems, since I-dosing could indicate a willingness to experiment with drugs.
“So that’s why we want parents to be aware of what sites their kids are visiting and not just dismiss this as something harmless on the computer,” Woodward said. “If you want to reach these kids, save these kids and keep these kids safe, parents have to be aware. They’ve got to take action.”
Another concern the OBN has is that many of these I-dosing sites lure visitors to actual drug and drug paraphernalia sites.
If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
