DEATH Row offers online suicide drugs to British teens.
The drug, Nembutal, is illegal for human consumption in Britain, but can be purchased via the Internet.
Ill websites target vulnerable children by selling a half-price rebate to under-20s on drugs used to execute prisoners on death row.
A promotion even includes a "lethal dose calculator" based on age – as low as 15 years – and on weight.
Sellers ship a "fast and discreet" delivery by mail to British households.
Only 10 grams of nembutal are enough to cause respiratory arrest and death in minutes.

A number of investigations have learned how victims bought drugs online from abroad.
In 2013, an investigation revealed how 16-year-old Isobel Narayan committed suicide with the death row drug she sought online from suicide forums and was purchased by mail.
She reportedly suffered a "crisis of confidence" a month before her death and even typed a list of reasons why she should kill herself. She then drank a deadly mixture of drugs – mixed with a mouthwash before going to bed.
The bachelor's student from Didsbury, Manchester, was found dead the next day by her devastated parents.
Manchester coroner Nigel Meadows said it was a "matter of public interest" that she was able to get the drugs.
In 2017, 25-year-old Dhuha Al-Nader died the same day she was expected from a mental health crisis team who took Nembutal, which she had bought on the Dark Web.
Pentobarbital is a class B medicine under British law.
A Home Office spokesperson said: "It is illegal to supply, possess, produce, import or export Class A, B or C. Without the proper authority." Law Enforcement Agencies collaborate with Internet Service Providers to shut down British websites committing these offenses. "
Dr. Philip Nitschke, founder of Exit International, known as Dr. Death after leading the world's first assisted suicide in the 1990s, warned that many sites were scams.
He told the Mirror: "These sites are smooth with compelling evidence – but their business model is simply to take money and do nothing, which causes a lot of panic and pain."

YOU'RE NOT ALONE
Every 90 minutes in the UK, a life is lost to suicide.
It does not discriminate or touch the lives of people from all corners of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, to reality stars and footballers.
It is the deadliest of the under-35s, more lethal than cancer and road accidents.
And men are three times more likely to commit suicide than women.
Yet, we rarely talk about it, a taboo that threatens to continue its lethal rage unless we all stop and take note now.
That's why The Sun launched the "You're not Alone" campaign.
The goal is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and eliminating the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all help save lives.
Let us wish to ask for help when we need it, and listen to others … You are not alone.

Medicinal dispensaries usually permit you to smell and examine the buds prior to purchase. This may vary from state-to-state.
