On February 21,1965, California state narcotics agents had raided his home in Berkeley—a squat building nicknamed the Green Factory—and charged Augustus Owsley Stanley III with operating a Methedrine laboratory. Now that the case had come to a hearing, every rule in the book demanded he should get a haircut and a conservative suit and start looking like a misunderstood choirboy.

But Owsley wasn't playing along. At one hearing, the short, dark ex-radar technician
showed up in denim trousers and jacket; at the next he wore a sharp Italian suit. He
broadcast dangerous, edgy resentment rather than decent fear. He managed to beat the charges anyhow. His lawyer argued that although Owsley's home might have looked like a Methedrine lab—could scarcely be said to look like anything else, in fact — nevertheless no completely synthesized Methedrine had been found. So Owsley was free.
