San Francisco: University of California Medical Center/Haight Ashbury Medical Clinic. (1967-1969). The first four issues of this journal (Vol. 1, Nos. 1 and 2; Vol. 2, Nos. 1 and 2), each edited by David E. Smith, M.D., medical director of the Haight-Ashbury Medical Clinic. The first issue has a number of lengthy, scholarly articles on "Psychedelic Drugs and the Law" and includes a bibliography as well as a glossary. The second volume, "Psychedelic Drugs and Religion," includes pieces by Timothy Leary, Meher Baba, among others. The third volume focuses at length on marijuana -- pharmacology, patterns of use, legislation, etc. The fourth volume is a review of amphetamine abuse. The first issue is a sixth printing, revised; the other issues are first printings. Each is a quarto; three are tapebound; three state "belongs to 409 office" on the cover. An interesting journal, for both its pharmacological and its sociological content: each issue contains various case histories taken from the Haight-Ashbury community of the late Sixties, and the experiences of those staffing the Medical Clinic, in addition to more general scientific and legal information. The journal still exists, under the name The Journal of Psychoactive Drugs. There is a bit of light sunning and surface soiling; the cloth tape on the bindings is slightly frayed; a near fine set. Softcover. Near Fine. (Inventory #: 032820)
