Binaural beats, when played through headphones, can mimic the effects of a variety of drugs

Thanks to a new website, University of Memphis students looking to get high might not even have to leave their dorm rooms – all they need is a computer.
Through the website i-doser.com, users can purchase audio playback that stimulates binaural brainwaves, replicating the sensation of being high on recreational drugs like marijuana, peyote, cocaine, opium and hash.
One of their “audio doses” even attempts to replicate the feeling of an orgasm.
Nick Ashton, founder of i-doser.com, said he wanted to make the feeling of getting high less of a hassle. He also said he wanted to make the use of drugs safe and legal.
“Our concept is that binaural brainwave simulations can be used to invoke a simulated mood or experience, and our proof of that is what inspired us to go public with our findings,” Ashton said.
