For a while now there has been a thing going called I-Dosing. If not familiar with I-Dosing it is an auditory binaural beats, involving the forced sensation of an altered state of mind.

It takes two different sounds in each ear that have the same frequencies and the brain combines the two sounds and creates a whole new sound. These then cause a sensation that puts one in a relaxed state of mind.

The reason it has been getting so big is that people, mostly young adults, are starting to use I-Dosing as a way to re-enact what drugs do to your brain. This is wrong for the reason being it leads young adults to the rode of using street drugs. It usually leads to becoming an addiction which is the road to street drugs.

In an article published by the Daily Mail and written by Daniel Bates, it is said that I-dosing started back in 1839 where a German physicist Heinrich Wilhelm Dove found that two tones played at slightly different frequencies in each ear would make the listener think they are hearing a quick beat.

He called it, binaural beats, and it has been researched in the past two centuries. What those two sounds do is send directional information to people to get the source of the sound.

To help with this problem parental awareness is something that can be done to preventing future problems, because I-dosing could be the road to experimenting with drugs.
