Segment about Marvel Comics Group on WNBC-TV News (New York) reported by Scott Osborne, 1973.

This news story includes a Marvel issue that referenced drug trafficking. In 1971, while Lee was Marvel's editor-in-chief, the U.S. Dept. of Health, Education and Welfare asked the company to weave anti-drug messaging into the popular comics, which Marvel proceeded to do, most famously in a three-part story that  appeared in Amazing Spider-Man issues 96 through 98.
