Official from the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs are worried that music now leads to the “hard stuff” Mark Woodward the Bureau’s spokesperson states, “The bigger concern is if you have a kid wanting to explore this, you probably have a kid that may end up smoking marijuana or looking for bigger things,” officials move to start legislation to ban all mp3 players and stereo systems to prevent the dangerous exposure of music to our frail youth. “We have to move on this we expect to shut down all music stores and start burning all musical instruments in the next two days.”
“Music is now a serious threat never before imagined,”
stated officials with the Department Of Dangerous Drugs and Narcotics. We have to stop our youth from getting on the hard stuff! Were thinking to close down the interstate and start removing radio’s CD’s and DVD’s from personal vehicles…because you just never know where those music dealers can store that insidious and dangerous music…”it will destroy the delicate fabric of society and cause looting in the streets! Were expecting to call in the National Guard and all law enforcement to put a stop once and for all to music being played or even hummed…in our streets”
“I think it’s very dangerous,” said Karina Forrest-Perkins, chief operating officer of Gateway to Prevention and Recovery in Shawnee. While there are no known neurological effects from digital drugs, they encourage kids to pursue mood altering substances, she said.
A 2005 University of South Florida study looked at whether children and young adults with ADHD could better focus by listening to binaural beats. But the results were inconclusive. The University of Virginia recently received a $357,000 grant to look at pain and anxiety therapies, primarily binaural beat stimulation.
Mental health counselor Jed Shlackman said he has successfully used CDs featuring binaural beats to help treat ADHD patients. He said binaural beats are relatively safe and no more dangerous than activities such as shopping or exercising done in excess by young people.
Sound Familiar? but of course it does and now we have actual public officials stating that the use of binaural
beats to therapeutically alter our anxieties, help find a cure for people that suffer from ADHD. Actual people that have to take actual dangerous doses of real drugs to help them function. Enter i-dosing…binaural
beats to anyone that wants to experience the remarkable phenomena of auditory binaural beats.
Psychology Today counters that binaural beats have been used therapeutically to treat anxiety and does not consider i-Dosing a danger to kids.
The University of South Florida did a study examining whether the binaural beats could help those with ADHD focus, and, on the whole, no studies have yet shown that the beats “chemically alter the brain” in any way.
Should parents really be concerned? A website selling a “digital drug” CD promises that the recording is a “completely safe, non-addictive binaural beat” that will provide the listener with “an ultra-happy mood and an increased confidence.”
Sounds like a gateway drug for sure… maybe Mozart? Anyone?
