What do you do if you want your illegal substance of choice home delivered quickly and cheaply? With the digital age there are hidden nooks on the Internet that make it simpler and more anonymous to buy and sell drugs. The old way was to ask a friend of a friend that knew where to get some ‘stuff’. You would be whisked away with promises of ‘the best’ while being subtly reminded that they are helping you and it would only be fair if you shared just a little bit. A drive to a dilapidated house in a dilapidated suburb where you meet ‘the man’ who is barely conscious of what decade it is. Yes, fun times, why use an impersonal website when you can go to a house full of people growing, manufacturing or cutting enough drugs to earn a visit from the DEA and they have premium security allowing you and your new best friend to just walk on in. I am much happier clicking on what I want and getting a delivery sent to a friend’s business under an anonymous made up name. While there are many marijuana seed suppliers that will send the product to you getting the actual drug or many of the other recreational drugs available is not something that you want to do on an open internet web site. This is where a site called Silk Road, which is not as hidden as it once was, becomes an ideal way to do a deal, straight from your computer. Silk Road has had a lot of unwelcome publicity and a US Senator named it as a “one stop shop for you illegal drug needs”. Surprisingly, the Senator is correct once you have logged onto Silk Road you are in the Amazon of illicit substances with different sellers offering products that vary in cost and potency. As with its book selling sales machine customers can rate their experience which gives you a good idea if they are reliable or not. Some of the sellers have a lot of products and a lot of happy customers so this not just a hobby for at least some of the people that are providing these services. There are two ways that Silk Road protects itself, its sellers and its buyers from prosecution by the world police forces. They use the Tor system, which anonymously connects you to the internet via an encrypted network of servers and the use of Bitcoins to make the tracing of transaction almost impossible. This is truly a total separate internet that has some darker edges and is hidden from most people that use the internet every day.

What do you want to discuss here exactly? Moral? Drug laws? The use of BTC for something BAD? Tor?

Sorry I'm not trying to be rude but you didn't actually post any questions.
