In this probing documentary, Stacey explores the nefarious underworld of children selling drugs online.

Stacey Dooley goes undercover in the world of Britain’s digital drug dealers. By using fake profiles on Instagram, Snapchat and new social app Yellow, she reveals how easy it is for school children as young as 15 to buy and sell class A drugs on social media.

Stacey comes face to face with a British gang who now rely upon young digital dealers. Through meeting one of Britain’s largest drug outfits, she reveals how 75% of their revenue now comes through this new wave of dealers who operate remotely from their own room, meaning the gang can earn up to £22,000 from cocaine sales in a matter of hours.

By going undercover on the apps, Stacey decodes a secret emoji drug code and arranges MDMA deals, where she confronts the dealers. One of who turns up in their school uniforms. Kids Selling Drugs Online provides a unique look into a fast growing world that is revolutionising how drug dealers reach their clients.
