Trivia

The anti-drug posters shown in Dr. Lieber's office are real, and promote the Do It Now Foundation, an organization that was founded to combat the use of amphetamines in the Los Angeles area in 1968. The Foundation still exists as of 2013, although it has now expanded its charter to include information on drugs, alcohol, sexuality, and behavioral health. See more »

An interesting topic--but too much speechifying by Quincy.
22 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with the death of a 15 year-old. Her internal organs are a mess and it's hard to believe that she seemed healthy and normal just three days earlier. What could have caused this? Eventually, Quincy is able to determine that the girl had smoked some marijuana that was grown with Colchicine--a chemical that was being sold in a pro-drug magazine in order to produce larger and stronger pot plants. The problem is that the chemical is deadly--and the readers of the magazine could potentially buy the product without realizing its effects. So, it's up to Quincy to find others who have bought the Colchicine as well as get that magazine to stop advertising this crazy chemical.

In many ways, it's an interesting episode. But, on the other hand, quite a few times during the show Quincy began making soap box speeches--speeches obviously the result of bad writing, as NO ONE talks that way! It's a shame, as without these incidents, the show could have earned a 7 or even 8.
