The Last Two Weeks on Drugs

posted by on August 22 at 18:47 PM

Be Afraid: Digital drugs are coming to ravage your children.

Websites are targeting your children with so-called digital drugs. These are audio files designed to induce drug-like effects.

Binaural beats create a beating sound. Other noises may be included with binaural beats. This is intended to mask their unpleasant sound.

If binaural beats work as promised, they are not safe. They could also create a placebo effect. The expectation elicits the response. Again, this is unsafe. At the very least, digital drugs promote drug use.

Big Gulp: Starbucks to ban pot smoking in its Amsterdam coffee shops.

Big Island: Hawaii will vote on deprioritizing pot possession.

Big Hand: American law enforcement praises success of US-funded Plan Mexico, which has left 7,000 dead and cartels thriving.

Big Decision: Federal court rules states can set their own medical marijuana laws despite federal prohibition. Says the ACLU of Washington’s Alison Holcomb: “This ruling is good news for Washington’s medical marijuana patients. It means that the federal government cannot interfere with a state’s ability to implement its own medical marijuana law. And it affirms the importance of the 10th Amendment of the Constitution, which guarantees every state the right to make and repeal its own laws.”

Drink and Be Merry: College presidents want to lower drinking age.

Drink and Be Scary: The federal government reminds us that the solution to underage drinking problems is always, always, always harsher penalties and less freedom.

Hey, there may be something to that story...

I've totally felt high when listening to music sometimes...

Of course, that was a long time ago...and I had smoked a lot of pot before donning those headphones...but, considering that I haven't listened to William Orbit since high school, there's no guarantee that he didn't discover this secret drug frequency and is solely responsible for my mental alteration at that time.

starbucks bans ALL smoking at all of Its stores, not just pot smoking. And it's not a new ban.

Damn that binaural sound! Ensure your children only listen to music through certified mono headphones!

I am vastly skeptical of this binaural sound thing.
