Friday and Gannon encounter Benjy "Blue Boy" Carver, an LSD user. Because of the then-lack of any laws against the use of LSD, they are unable to make a case against him, and Carver's parents are of no help. Finally, legislation is passed against LSD use and sale, but by then it may be too late for "Blue Boy".

According to Sergeant Friday's monologue that when he stated, "Wednesday October 5th , six months went...", he and Officer Gannon each had received two government issue pamphlets at "9:AM..." that morning from their supervisor, Captain Richey, who had stated, "Federal and State, you're in business...", then when their supervisor had answered Sergeant Friday's question about when each one of the two laws would take effect and that when Captain Richey had said, "48 hours.", well, that would have been on 10/7/1966/Fr. In all stark actuality, each one of the two laws took effect as of 12:01AM/10/6/1966/Th. and NOT on 10/7/1966/Fr. as was said in the show. See more
