Yet another story arises from the Darknet drug market when a 20 year old Australian man was found to have 30 “Masterchef” ecstasy pills in his possession. Despite the large amount he had, the pills were actually for his own personal usage.
Lachlan Allbon has had a long standing addiction to various drugs but his favorite was ecstasy. Allbon regularly purchased drugs through Darknet marketplaces in bulk to sustain his own habit.
Ecstasy use is on the rise in Australia and authorities have been working tirelessly to combat the problem but more and more people are turning to the Darknet to purchase it. This new age way of dealing drugs has been a thorn in the sides of law enforcement all over the world.
Allbon is no stranger to drug addiction as this is his second offense. The first time he was caught and charged for possession of dangerous drugs and received a two year probation sentence. These new charges subsequently violated his probation terms but he plead to the court to take it easy on him and they actually did.
He received an additional year on probation and was verbally reprimanded by the judge because of his drug usage. It was suggested that he recognize he has a problem but no type of drug rehabilitation was ordered leading many to question the entire situation.
Darknet drug dealing is becoming a huge problem worldwide but an even bigger problem is when the courts grant leniency on the criminals involved. Handing out light sentences for committing any kind of Darknet related crime isn’t helping the issue at all.
In fact, many consider it to be a significant factor that’s making things even worse. Changing the minimum sentences for such crimes should seriously be considered in order to better combat the war on drugs and the many illegal activities operating throughout the Darknet.
