This is slightly off topic, but we could see these sellers moving to Silk Road.

Edit:

It is legal in California and the citizens of California voted to legalize medial marijuana.  However, federal law trumps state law so the feds seems to have raided these state legitimized businesses.  This could be huge.

One useful factor might be that cannabis buyers in California face almost no legal risk, so the incentive to hide cannabis purchases is very low. You never know if you're buying from a cop, and this scares off some potential buyers in other states. Less so in CA where all you'd lose are your coins.

Bitcoin might have an unfortunate effect on drug laws; usually authorities target the "predatory" dealers, but as that becomes more difficult they may shift more focus to customers. I'd like to think this would highlight the impracticality and cruelty of the drug war, but in reality I doubt most people would mind oppressing those low-status drug addicts.

This will get worse before it gets better. When government oppression fails, their solution is usually more oppression.

which is why the bulk of collected taxes should be surrendered to the state, and the states then pass on funds to the fed.  with the fed holding the purse strings, the states fall in line giving up constitutional powers.

Well so long as we're making wishes, I want a clarified commerce clause. Smiley
