Palo Alto, CA: The Collective, 1975. Packet, originally held together by paperclip, comprised of twelve discrete items, most on 8.5x11 inch sheets, some on legal size sheets, all stapled at upper left corners. 36 pages of material in toto.
The Collective was a city-funded drug treatment center that took the further radical step of critiquing the use of Valium and other widely prescribed drugs. In its brochures the pharmaceutical industry is depicted as another kind of pusher. Much of packet addresses efforts by Palo Alto's city government to rescind funding for the group. One brochure is a statement to the people of Indochina.
