    I picked up a historic piece you may find interesting. I believe this may have been the first free clinic in the country and revolutionized treatment for drug addiction. The Rock Medicine tag dates this to the early 70s when there was a tie-in with Bill Graham and these kind of satin jackets were still popular. The links can explain why i find this such an important find better than I can. Wish I knew his last name.

    Some links to this clinic that explain the history of the clinic behind this important piece:

      Another great Hippie Era find! Thankfully I never had to go there! Fact is I tried to stay clear of the Haight/Ashbury, probably one of the reasons I'm still alive today! Besides it cost 40 cents to cross the Bay Bridge($5 now going to $8 soon), and that was almost a gallon and a half of gas! :^D

      I posted your links here because it's easier to get to them!
