Furthermore it's obvious that the "Silk Road" was just one of these hard-to-find e-commerce sites on the "Deep Web" that allegedly trafficked in drugs, guns, computer-hacking, money-laundering and even murder-for-hire. The deep web
Well, most propably, it was at least the most popular site, considering customers all over the world and their reviews, whom you can also read in the "normal" web.
In documents filed in U.S. District Court in New York, FBI agent Christopher Tarbell described 13,000 drug listings on Silk Road last month, including cannibas, ecstasy, prescriptions, psychedelics and stimulants, and others for firearms, anonymous bank accounts and hit men.

The FBI reportedly seized $3.6 million in Bitcoins after agents made 100 drug purchases through the website.
