Chief Devon Jones fails a drug test for marijuana. He says he took it while on a trip to Colorado, where the drug is legal. While Frank and the NYPD legal team are trying to figure out the consequences, the new mayor, who is pro-legalization, offers Jones a position as Deputy Commissioner of Emergency Management if he is fired
Chief Jones insists that he did nothing wrong, but Frank points out that marijuana is still illegal in New York and is against NYPD policy. They eventually come to a compromise where the Chief will be suspended and go through outpatient rehabilitation. The mayor isn’t happy because she was hoping to push her pro-marijuana agenda if the Chief was fired.
Eddie calls for a citizen to help her during a foot chase and the guy blows her off. When she sees that the man is Skip Fuller, she arrests him for failing to help an officer and resisting arrest. Skip was part of a fraternity hazing ritual where Eddie was dragged naked from her boyfriends frat room and paraded around the house. Skip didn’t participate but he watched and posted photos. When Eddie filed a complaint, the only action the college took was to make the fraternity stop the practice.
