Tide laundry detergent becomes underworld currency.

Seriously, I thought it was April Fools when I read that. I was ready for Rod Sterling to walk in and start his spiel.

I want to add something weirdly obscure to be amusing, but topping a story about an underground currency utilising laundry detergent is difficult.

Also, you guys can buy Heroin for $60? Lucky.

I just heard about this this morning on the morning show I listen to. It looks like they had the same source as you (I remember that lame Grime Wave pun). I was hoping Snopes would have something to say on the matter, but I guess it's too new.

It seems kind of ridiculous, but so far, this is all I've heard on it.

Edit:
One person called into the show saying he works at a big-box store that had a sharp rise in Tide theft (always the huge pump bottles), but that doesn't mean he wasn't lying.

Goldman Sachs sells its stake in sex trafficking site back to management. I actually had to look this one up to make sure I wasn't missing anything, but according to All-Wise Wikipedia "backpage.com" has a whopping 70% of prostitution advertising in the United States.
