So by that logic, we do not know then you think it is plausible that any substance or physical material not already cataloged automatically would be deamed as illegal.
Actually they did reference the fact that they could not charge the suspects with drug abuse / illegal drugs through the court because there was no record of the substances being illegal. The drug was not verified as the cause of death only that it was used near time of death.
Maybe the ritz cracker the person ate before they died caused the death.
They couldn't verify the drug caused the death only that the substance was in the two girls system at time of death. Which is why they tried to find out how the drug was make to track down who would have access to the machine.
It was found that the first girl who died from apparent drowning actually did die from the drowning not from the substance at all. It was suicide. Caused not by the effects of the drug on her body but by the awareness she gained by using the drugs. An awareness that she could have gained without the drugs.
The young man who used his fathers machine to create the drugs was never charged with distribution of illegal substances because the substance was not illegal. He was not charged with any of the murders of the three girls. The first was a suicide, of which he morned the loss. The two "chrome" girls did not kill the first. Though the mother felt they were responsible for the girls death.
The mother of the first girl was responsible for the deaths of the other two girls. Hacked the machine and poisoned them by altering the drugs
None of any of the others who had taken the drugs created died as a result even though it was distributed widely amongst the student body.

Every episode runs along the same thing.
The year is 2048. Evolving technologies can no longer be regulated. Dangerous advancements forever alter the criminal landscape. Police are not prepared. Law enforcement combats this corruption with a new line of defense…
Every episode carries that fundemental theme through it. Whether it is the killer robot girl or something else.
