      I found the portrayal of the drug dealer to be interesting. There seemed to be the pull of a Walter White narrative (totally possible I'm imposing that myself): quiet white man, putting himself through school, doesn't do his own drugs, a secret side gig as a successful drug dealer. I was surprised the reporter didn't explore the irony of selling lethal synthetic opiates to fund med school. He cared for the people physically proximate to him and sold drugs anonymously to those farther away. The physical and emotional distance afforded by the dark web may make it easier for someone to live with that kind of contradiction compared to having to interact with dealers and users in person.
