Crack Market: Why Can't Store Busted for Crack Sales Pay Penalties with Crack Profits?

Earlier this week, the city lowered the boom on Barah's Market, a place where C&H was less likely to refer to pure cane sugar than crack and heroin (purity uncertain).

Among other stipulations, the market at Turk and Leavenworth will have to pony up $30,000 in penalties to the city. Since it's easier to amass large amounts of money slinging crack than selling popsicles, this prompts a question: How can the city be certain the fine money it's due wasn't earned by pushing drugs?
