iDoses: let the resource drain begin

After reading this story on the growth of ‘digital drugs’ in the US, the first thing that occurred to me was the time that AOD professionals are going to have to spend debunking stuff like this at the expense of real treatment and prevention work. That said, it’s also a phenomenon that needs a lot more investigation – not to determine whether it does mimic drugs (I’d nearly stake my life on the fact that it doesn’t) – but to explore its idiosyncrasies and any light it might shed on wider behaviours by young people in the digital age.
