As some of you may remember last week, the anonymous online drug marketplace known as the Silk Road was shutdown. After years of investigation, authorities were able to arrest the site's alleged founder Ross Ulbricht, known online as Dread Pirate Roberts.

Now all over the world buyers and sellers who were using Silk Road are now being arrested. Joining the show to talk about the aftermath of this bust is Jose Pagliery from CNN Money.

Jose has been covering this issue and recently published a report on the world wide prices of drugs that were sold on Silk Road.
