Drug smuggling on the internet

“A multinational police force last week arrested eight men on suspicion of running a secret online store called “The Farmer’s Market” that sold more than $1 million worth of narcotics, including LSD, ecstasy, fentanyl, mescaline, ketamine, DMT, and high-end marijuana.

“According to a 66-page, 12-count indictment that was unsealed last Monday, The Farmer’s Market provided a fully functional e-commerce experience, including a storefront, order forms, online forums, customer service, and various payment methods for the different sources of supply.”

And I thought I was making that up. Well, it’s more drug smuggling than e-commerce in Electricland. But still… What will those crazy kids think up next? I’m afraid to find out.
