In May, the Biden Administration will begin distributing grants to nonprofits and local governments to help make drug use “safer” for addicts.

This includes funds to provide “smoking kits” which will include new, sanitary pipes for smoking crack, meth and other “illicit substances.” After all, we want to make sure that when someone is smoking crack, they’re doing it the safe, healthy way. Other government-provided supplies will include clean syringes. This funding is part of the Democrats’ “American Rescue Plan,” which passed the Senate on party lines with Kamala Harris casting the tie-breaking vote. It’s being sold as part of the Democrats’ “equity” push, with preference going to drug paraphernalia suppliers who serve the African-American and LGBTQ communities of hard drug addicts.

Some might have a different word for this other than “rescue,” “equity” or “compassion.” A word like “enabler.” That’s the term used in 12-step programs for people who think they’re “helping” addicts but who are actually just helping them to kill themselves. Some might even say that deliberately enabling black and gay addicts to continue smoking crack or meth instead of helping them get off of it is shockingly racist and homophobic. I guess they just don’t understand “equity.”

Similar programs have been tried in blue cities, and some have given up after seeing how they just increased open drug addiction. It’s certainly worked like gangbusters in San Francisco and Seattle. If you’re old enough to remember when “SNL” was funny, they once did a sketch about Democrats mourning Michael Dukakis’ presidential loss in which a Joan Baez impersonator sang sadly about the Democrats’ lost dream: “Free needles for the addicts, free condoms for the kids…” Back then, it was meant to satirize the crazy things Republicans believed Democrats would do if they got into power. Today, Democrats are in power, and that's the official government policy. Moral: Never underestimate how crazy Democrats become when they get a little power.

PS – As I tweeted when I first heard about this story, Presidential relatives have often had an impact on policy. Lady Bird Johnson beautified the highways, Laura Bush promoted literacy, and now Hunter Biden has inspired free government crack pipes.

    The "homeless" situation in our larger cities must be solved as soon as possible! It is truly a symptom of failure, probably on several levels. Early on, homeless veterans seemed to be a
    significant part of the numbers -- but I have not heard more information about this to confirm that it is continuing. Surely there is a part of our federal gov't that could find causes in common and work to solve the needs of such groups. As a Christian, I would hope our country would welcome local Christian groups to work to solve the problems in each area with backing from our government as needed.

    Remember when real adults were elected to represent America? Remember when the elected government was actually trying to make people realize how unhealthy smoking was and took advertising off television? Now we have people who are telling people it’s GOOD for them to use certain things and they are trying to make money off of people’s misery for spending every cent they have to get high. Everyone knows about alcohol and what can happen with you over indulge, but why add more stuff like drugs to be abused and give young people ideas that it’s ok? Sorry but we need adults to run America, not children who think they are entitled because they are here! Parents— teach your children well! Make them understand that working for what you have will give them satisfaction and a sense of pride. We need more work ethic than socialism ever gave anyone! We need patriotic people in our Government. Not spoiled brats.

    In my humble opinion……those voting to give taxpayer dollars to criminals (illegal drug users)….are abettors to a crime / actual accomplices to crime. In my opinion, it appears that, once again, those in law-making positions are breaking the law (and being highly compensated for it)!

    Free crack pipes for Hunter and friends! Where else could they possibly spend those 30 million dollars? Any ideas?

    The only things the Biden administration is "rescuing" America from are sanity, common sense & Christian values. What an absolute disgrace this is! God help us!

    I am outraged that my tax money is going to this type issue!! I resent my tax money being spent to enable or encourage negative, unlawful, unjust, unrighteous, illegal, etc. behavior. Where did righteousness, justice, lawfulness, etc. go????????????????????
