I guess I somehow sent us into a drug conversation...that's fine and well, but I'm not sharing, so get your own. grin

My point was not so much about drug purchases, but about ANY transaction we make with an expectation of privacy, like a garage sale or a craigslist purchase or even selling a crappy ukulele to your little sister for $10. In a cashless future, every change of hands is recorded somewhere, somehow...and that is something we've never done before. I wonder what it will be like. It doesn't sound great to me, but it kinda seems inevitable.
