President Joe Biden is turning oil pipes to crack pipes with a new spending plan to push millions into the drug-addicted community. What could go wrong?
First off, Biden wants to throw clean drug habits into the minority community. That’s assuming that Black Americans are the only people who smoke crack. Has anyone sounded the racist alarm yet?
Regardless of the racial sentiment, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is spending $30 million on a “Harm Reduction Program Grant” to make drug use safer for everyone.
Why would the federal government make use easier while raising the smoking age to 21-years-old? Does anyone see how that makes sense?
The grant will fund things like safe smoking kits and supplies, safe intercourse with kids, including PrEP resources and condoms. Not sure what else is included outside of condoms and PrEP resources, but it sounds odd to broaden the kit. The grant also includes harm reduction vending machines. Does that mean anyone can stroll up like they’re buying a soft drink and buy a crack pipe and hypodermic needle? What could go wrong?
Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) isn’t happy about it, and you shouldn’t either.
Kennedy said, “Well, you know, maybe George Washington couldn’t tell a lie, but just about every politician since then has mastered the art.”
Kennedy was talking about drug paraphernalia that’s taxpayer-funded, and the fact checks that have suggested there are no crack pipes being distributed.
Kennedy continued, “I feel they’re not being sincere. You are correct. Initially, the Administration stated that crack pipes would be included. Jen Psaki claimed today, ‘Nope, we’re not going to include the crack pipes,’ yet they’re still sending out youngsters and these drug smoking kits designed to facilitate the use of crack cocaine and meth. And they claim that using their kits is safer and promotes racial equality. There is no such thing as a safe way to utilize crack cocaine or meth.”
If the Biden Administration provides drug paraphernalia, they’re aiding and abetting a misdemeanor offense. Though possession of drug paraphernalia may be decriminalized in some places, it’s not in all places.
Kennedy is correct in his assessment, and there’s not a safe way to do crack cocaine and meth. Instead of funding rehab programs that would get people clean, the idea is that they should keep using drugs but use them safely. Does anyone believe that people will clean up their life if they don’t want to? To make changes, there has to be a desire. It’s much more difficult to stop when you enjoy what you’re doing. This program isn’t going to create change. It will continue the drug and homeless program across the country.
