Silk Road was created from drugs.  Thus, should the sale of the artwork have been made illegal?  Shouldn't intent play a factor?  Much like Ross Ulbricht's situation, the answer is nuanced.  After all, I wasn't selling drugs for the sake of ingestion. 

This work was meant to foster conversation around Ross' intentions in creating the Silk Road as I believe his sentence for building a free market experiment was unjust.
