Shot at Bitcoin with the bolded part.  It does take things off Silk Road and more on a different way to pay a person directly for drugs.



Is Digital Money the New Way to Buy Drugs?


Quote
I'm not gonna name names, but someone just mentioned paying for weed with a Square account. It'd be equally easy to use Paypal, Venmo, Bitcoin (RIP) or any of the myriad mobile payment systems that allow you to send money from your phone.

I mean, think about it: As long as you don't put some idiotic note on your account like "drugs," virtual currency would be a really easy way for drug dealers to take one very dangerous aspect of trafficking out of the equation—as long as they took some precautions.

So have you ever bought drugs using a mobile payment system? Is this a really tired scheme that a innocent lad like me just hadn't ever heard of? Let us know in the poll.

Poll is on this page http://gizmodo.com/5845229/is-digital-money-the-new-way-to-buy-drugs

bitcoin (RIP)?

Also paying for drugs with a reversable and public system like Paypal.  Only if you are a downright idiot (both as dealer and buyer).

So drug dealer gets busted and cops see he has $280,000 in paypal transactions.  It ain't going to take Columbo to crack that case.  Super aweseom for all the buyers to provide complete and detailed personal information along with transaction log for the Police.

One article with a pejorative, passing reference to Bitcoins does not a rally make.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA
It is being worked on by smart people. -DamienBlack
