This is Your Drugs on Music

Dave Munger is asking you to reveal your bad habits, and he also wants to know what drugs you use. Seriously, he is looking at any connections between favorite music and recreational pharmacology:
So while we know the stereotype of rock fans is that they prefer beer and marijuana to wine and cocktails, the Rentfrow and Gosling study can't tell us whether the stereotype is true. Today's study addresses that limitation.

The study is mostly anonymous, though IP information is initially recorded. So if you are running for president, you may not want to take the survey and reveal to the world that your favorite subgenre of alternative rock is emo.
