Drug trafficking on the so-called“darknet” represents a growing threat that Europe must address as a unit, according to a report published this week by the EU’s police and drugs agencies.
“Drug sales on these markets, although modest when compared to the overall retail drug market, are significant and appear to be expanding,” the report said.
The report looked at the sale of drugs on illegal website such as AlphaBay, with a focus on sites within the European Union, and countries closely linked to it, Norway and Turkey.
It found that Germany, the UK and the Netherlands were the biggest buyers of illegal drugs through the darknet.
