Yea it's good but it is getting to much publicity.
It will probably be taken down soon.
Silk road has a forum I suggest reading that.

Ditch the dealer & grow your own but for more exotic item's there is other "private" place's but you wont get access there easily, so next best thing is the silk road, open to the public 24/7

Secret website harboured drugs smorgasbord, court hears

A judge has expressed fears about a secretive eBay-like online marketplace a man used to buy illegal drugs for his "smorgasbord" trafficking operation.

Melbourne's County Court heard the black-market Silk Road had been described as a "certifiable one-stop shop" for illicit drugs.

Consumers protected by anonymity browsed catalogues of substances on Silk Road and users were given positive or negative ratings by other users based on their dealings.

Prosecutor Morgan Brown told the court the website was accessed by software designed to enable online anonymity and a digital "virtual currency", Bitcoin, was used to buy goods.

Judge Damien Murphy commented that anyone with a computer could access the website and he added: "Any kid short of money can become a part-time drug importer."

Judge Murphy on Wednesday described Paul Leslie Howard – who used Silk Road to import cocaine, MDMA and amphetamine and trafficked those drugs and also LSD, methamphetamine and marijuana – as operating a "smorgasbord drug-market operation".

He said Howard, 32, was a "like a street vendor with a smorgasbord out the front of his house" or with a garage sale "but in this case it's on the internet".

In what could be the first prosecution with Silk Road a major player, Ms Brown told the court that in two months from March last year Howard imported drugs 11 times.

Ms Brown said Australian Customs and Border Protection Service officers in Melbourne and Sydney examined mail articles addressed to Howard at his Brunswick West home.

Most were sent from the Netherlands; two were from Germany.

The total pure weight of MDMA was 46.9 grams and the pure weight of cocaine 14.5 grams.

Australian Federal Police members who raided Howard's home on July 12 found various amounts of marijuana and items that included digital scales, clip seal bags, $2300 cash, a money counter and 35 stun guns disguised as mobile phones.

Ms Brown said a later forensic analysis of two authentic mobile phones found 10,700 messages on one and 9700 on the other.

She told the court the analysis revealed incriminating text messages that included "I got 5 grand worth if you want", " ... promote the LSD I got more in. I sold 200 cubes last week" and "no cubes left atm but some other 'things' u might like!".

Ms Brown said Silk Road was an online "marketplace with similar characteristics to eBay" that Howard registered an account with in April until July 17.

She quoted an example of a post he made when he wrote: "Hey guys, I'm just starting out here. I'm Aus based and only shipping to Aus as not to roach on anyone's turf.

"I'll be basically doing dutch (sic) speed and Peruvian Charlie to start and branch into more as I get coin back in my pocket.

"I source from both sr and non sr vendors but I prefer the sr system as far as selling is concerned! So yeah that's me story and I'm keen for any tips or just some chat from you guys as I'm still learning!"

Defence barrister JJ Jassar tendered an article on Silk Road by Melbourne writer, journalist and blogger Eiley Ormsby from which he said Howard found the website.

Mr Jassar told Judge Murphy that Ms Ormsby was in court and that her piece – Silk Road: The eBay of Illegal Drugs – was the first views on the website by a journalist.

(Ms Ormsby later told Fairfax Media the piece was published in October).

Mr Jassar said Howard also viewed a YouTube video and bought from the website after he "put himself out there as a purchaser" and that he had to "prove himself for people to be able to supply him".

Under increasing financial pressure after he was forced to close an unrelated business website and with his wife not working, Howard made the "naive, stupid and foolish" decision to import and deal drugs, he said.

Mr Jassar described Howard's involvement as without sophistication, complexity or any real planning.

His tearful wife told Judge Murphy she faced returning to the US if her husband was jailed because she could not work or support herself.

In her sentencing submissions, Ms Brown said a maximum term of three to five years with a minimum term of two to three years was within the range.

Howard pleaded guilty to two charges of importing a marketable quantity of a border-controlled drug – which carries a maximum of 25 years jail – and to trafficking controlled drugs.

Howard, who also pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing 32 controlled weapons, was remanded in custody for sentencing next week.
