SALARIED - Anagram of earl + said.

Easy peasy!

Must be a duff grid because the down clues leave me with...S?A?R?E? and SALARIED, as you can see, doesn\'t fit but is obviously the correct answer!

Need to look into it!

Thank you anyway my friend!

22 down. Camels affected by drug (6).

MESCAL - anagram of CAMELS. Mescal is a cactus which if chewed, when dried, produces halucinations - it contains the compound used in the drug mescaline. This gives you the L for your other clue.
