Craigslist is notorious for creating bizarre markets for items that otherwise would be difficult to sell. Last year, it was reported that a black market for prescription pills cropped up on Craigslist due to the lack of law enforcement regulating the site. Also once the cronut dessert craze hit the nation, people all over Craigslist were selling the item for as much as $30.
