This is something that turns my stomach, instead of trying to help people recover from drug addiction, Joe Biden and the democrats are condoning drug use by handing-out free crack pipes, with tax payer money no less. It says everything there is to say about the people who vote for them, if you are a drug addict, you are not allowed by law, to buy and own a firearm (unless your name is Hunter Biden) and chances are, these people are all convicted felons anyway, which makes them ineligible to vote at all. But that little detail won’t stop the democrats.
There is only one reason to hand-out free drug paraphernalia, to keep people high, so they will continue to vote for you. That and also giving these folks a free ‘get out of jail’ card, by doing away with cash bail. Of course they say that the reason they are doing this is to “save lives”, but that is a bunch of crap. If you really wanted to save lives, you would help them get-off of drugs so that they can be productive members of society. Apparently, that is not what democrats’ really want to do, all they want is to just hand-out free ‘stuff’ and keep people ignorant.
In an article at foxla.com they write:
NEW YORK – The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services is reportedly seeking to give grants to programs that hand out crack pipes to drug addicts as part of a program to keep drug users safe. The idea is to limit infections among drug users.
A $30 million Biden administration grant program includes money for non-profit groups to purchase ‘safe smoking kits/supplies according to a report in the Washington Free Beacon.
The pipes would also hopefully convince people to smoke instead of injecting drugs because injections are reportedly riskier.
San Francisco and Seattle have tried crack pipe kit distribution programs.
News of the pipe program came the same day that the Justice Department signaled that it might be willing to allow safe injection sites for people to use heroin and other drugs.
The first officially authorized safe injection sites opened in New York City in November.
But really, free crack pipes is a mere drop in the bucket if you think about it, in Seattle, they have allocated tax payer dollars to give these drug addicted felons, free housing, in prime locations throughout the city no less. Yep, if you are a crackhead in Seattle, you too can have a nice condo apartment in the downtown area with your own view of the Puget Sound…isn’t that just swell?
How much does Seattle spend per homeless person? Nearly $100,000 for every homeless man, woman, and child in King County, yet the crisis seems only to have deepened, with more addiction, more crime, and more tent encampments in residential neighborhoods. I mean, why work hard at all when the city will provide you with a home, food, medical care and free crack pipes AND let you out of jail every time you commit a crime, that’s a real sweet deal isn’t it?
But let’s not forget one of the really important issues here, these kinds of policies will affect people of color most of all, since it is in black communities that crime and drug addiction have done the most damage. Sounds to me like the democrats aren’t trying to help black people at all, heck, they aren’t trying to help anybody really, just themselves and THAT’S the whole point!
