As looters and arsonists lay waste to already blighted parts of Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray, two of the city's brightest students are helping to carry out a historic drug robbery spree-- and flood the city with highly addictive pain pills and heroin. Their plan is to use their gang connections and computer programming skills to set up a high tech drug delivery service and Dark Web marketplace. They became America's youngest drug lords, in the process sparking bloody gang warfare and a nationwide wave of addiction and murder."@en ;
