Teens get high on 'digital drugs'

The latest drug trend in US has interstingly nothing to do with the pharmaceuticals.

The latest 'drugs' that keep kids on a high are digital. MP3s and Wired reports are keeping the young generation on a high, called "i-dosing."

In fact, just by putting on headphones and listening to music or rather "a droning noise," it is said that the user can experience effects similar to those of cocaine, marijuana, peyote and opium.

This report concerns the officials that i-dosing may act as a gateway drug to actual drugs. The most agitating issue is how can one know if the user is simply i-dosing or just listening to a cool track.
