What does r/drugs think about how a cashless society would affect the black market? Would we all be screwed?

In reading about the downfall of the silk road, I can't help but think the only way for any underground drug market to exist long term is for the users to continue to buy the old-fashioned way: in person with cash (see ars technica link below, particularly the comments). Recently, there's been talk of a coming "cashless society" given that people are using cash less and less these days. Wired writer David Wolman recently wrote a book on this idea. It seems like once you rule out cash and anonymous digital currency like bitcoin then the market's only alternative is to use bottles of liquid Tide or something, since I doubt the supply of precious metals is large enough for the market to use them as a currency. It seems like then it would be pretty difficult to explain to a cop why you have fifteen bottles of Tide. What does drugs think of all this? Further reading in the links below:
