Sound As the New Illegal Narcotic?

ehrichweiss writes The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics is warning parents and teachers of a new threat to our children: sounds. Apparently kids are now discovering binaural beats and using them to get ‘physiological effects.’ The report goes on with everyone suggesting that such aural experiences will act as a gateway to drug usage and even has one student claiming there are ‘demons’ involved. Anyone who has used one of those light/sound machines knows all about the effects that these sounds will give and to state that they will lead kids to do drugs is nonsense at best. It seems the trend in scaring the citizens with a made-up problem has gone to the next level.”
