LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- We all know you can find just about anything on the Internet.

But did you know there's a site that offers illegal drugs, weapons, even chemicals for sale? It's a growing concern for law enforcement and admittedly there's not a whole lot they can do to stop it.

News 3’s Gerard Ramalho joins us now with his exclusive investigation. The site has been in existence for just about a year now.

It's called the silk road marketplace accessing it isn't necessarily easy but once you're on it, every type of contraband you can imagine is there for sale including items that could be used for terrorist activity.
