Dragnet's acid trip

From Alternet:

The All-American cop drama Dragnet, featuring the iconic Sgt. Joe Friday, premiered in 1967, just as LSD was moving from medical laboratories into the mainstream...

This can be verified easily as incorrect by 15 years, since Dragnet as a TV show began in 1952, not 1967. I knew 1967 was wrong because I remember seeing the TV show when I was a kid. I probably also heard the earlier radio version before we got a TV.

But Blueboy got the jump on me, since I didn't get my hands on LSD until 1969.

Maybe Alternet doesn't have internet access. Send them a contribution today!
