the goods are likely to be not as claimed, or even poisoned or booby trapped in some way, or you'll be followed back to your "base", then sniped, etc. You'd have to use "dead drops", passive IR scanning, do the pickups at night, leave "flag" messages, or send "message arrow", or notes on a sling shot stone, etc. Meeting people will be a very high risk thing to do.

If it is a true SHTF no one will enforce drug laws and currency will be worthless. What will be the point in drug trafficking?

Exactly. Although certain goods will always have some worth.

The black market exists because of demand and will continue to exist long after sticks and stones are the only weapons around...the only issue is what is sought after by those still around

Drugs will be trade material for gold, silver, fuel, guns, ammo. Not only will they have to watch their backs from law enforcement now they have many predators out there looking for trade goods

There won't be any year to wait to anything. If we have economic collapse, trade will start immediately. Services, goods, precious metals, guns, ammo, pharmaceuticals, dope...
Will be the new currency.

You need to reassess reality.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Services are a good source of trade as well
