Dark Net Drugs Adverts Double in Less Than a Year

In the war on drugs, nationally and internationally, governments are fighting a losing battle. The harder enforcement agencies try, the faster the illegal sources step up their illegal activities. BBC News found that within the last year since the FBI closed down the ‘Silk Road’, illegal drug traffic has more than doubled on the ‘Dark Net’.

In October 2013, there were 18,174 drugs listings across four main markets, according to the internet safety organization Digital Citizens Alliance, based in the US. A recent trawl of the dark net by BBC News revealed there were now 43,175 listings across 23 markets.
