    Pretty crazy that something like this exists. They are making 22 million a year in sales. I do not endorse this btw. I stumbled upon an article on Forbes.

    Thanks for the share.

    It's not really that crazy if you take a liberal attitude toward drug consumption, and it's been going for years.

    I'd wager that acquiring drugs is one of the primary reason why most of us got interested in BitCoins in the first place. Myself included. I can verify the place is legit, but too pricey to really bother with.

    Sure, like it's that hard to fake positive reviews. xD

    Funny, but black market is the one who took humanity one step further in the process of evolution.
    If not that drug market, Bitcoins wouldn't be so popular.

    TIL... not really. It's been known for a long time on places with legally questionable/illegal content such as *chans.
    I would recommend being careful exploring TOR services. You will come across what you shouldnt.


    As for how they deliver, it's most likely either local drops at places. One method the fuzz has revealed is that some scout out a nearby house and find the times they leave. Then they have it delivered to that house and when its dropped off they go in and grab it. National shipments in the continental U.S. dont have drug screening afaik.

    The DEA is now cracking down on companies like UPS and Fed Ex. But fed ex isn't going to submit to the DEA demands.

    It's easy to mask smells when shipping "products". Or so I've heard. I wouldn't know anything about that though. As I peep out my curtains. :no:

    It's sent in standard domestic mail and sent to whatever address you choose.

    There's no secret method, or effort to avoid non-existent sniffer dogs. These guys are sending grams worth - not kilos. Incredibly small amounts, that in the grand scheme of things doesn't even scrape the surface of the drug trade.

    Today has been a joyous day witnessing the young on BHW extend their minds.

    Here's a very real question: BTC is anonymous currency, so what did you think it would be used for?

    Welcome to adulthood I guess. Your innocence isn't gone, you're just realizing now that it never really existed. Cheers.

    It's pageantry. They own UPS and Fed Ex.

    I think I'll be exploring the TOR network a little more. My curiosity is peaked.

    some dude was dumb enough to order weed from The Silk Road to his actual address in Australia. Got intercepted by police obviously. Now he smokes his underwear in jail wearing a hat that says "I am dumb".

    If you have to resort to buying drugs online instead of from someone you know, you need to get out of the house more.

    Well there are some rarities that are shit hard to come by. like dmt. It is not that easy to get if you first have to order the plants to extract it from since there are no known plants worthy enough of extracgin growing where ever you live.

    I ordered some ayahuasca and it got stopped at customs , but it only had my name and address so they dropped the charges, as we all know how easy it is to order some for someone you hate.
