Once upon a time, you could sign on to Silk Road and buy everything from LSD to Moon Rock molly with Bitcoin. That time is now over because the FBI along with a few other federal agencies have seized the domain and shutdown the drug-dealing site. The only question is, what took them so long?
Silk Road found its way into popular culture a couple of years ago when Gawker's Adrian Chen a big exposée on "the site where you can buy any drug imaginable." Chen made the point that it wasn't just illegal drugs that were being sold on the anonymous black market site. But when you look at the criminal complaint, it's pretty obvious that it's the drugs the Feds are interested in.
