I am not sure how making it safer(?) and easier(?) to smoke crack achieves “racial equality” but I do know that if the current administration wants to do literally anything, it slaps that label on its projects.
I mean, it is either “racial equality” or “climate” or “voter suppression” those are the only three things in the playbook.
Anyways, back to why crack pipes are good and should cost the taxpayers money…
The $30 million grant program will provide funding to nonprofits and local governments (nothing sus about…) to help make drug use safer for addicts.
Included in the grant are funds for “smoking kits/supplies.” A spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services told the Washington Free Beacon that these kits will provide pipes for users to smoke crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, and “any illicit substance.”
The HHS said that the kits aim to reduce the risk of infection when smoking substances with glass pipes, which can lead to infections through cuts and sores. Applicants for the grants are prioritized if they treat a majority of “underserved communities,” including African Americans and “LGBTQ+ persons,” as established under President Joe Biden’s executive order on “advancing racial equity.”
So… Black crack heads need treatment more than white crack heads? Weird flex, but okay.
Certainly LGBTQ+ crack heads need treatment more that cis-gendered crack heads. Obviously.
Equality certainly doesn’t take the use that root word very seriously.
Sgt. Clyde Boatwright, president of the Maryland Fraternal Order of Police, said government resources are better spent on preventing drug abuse rather than making it safer.
But what does he know. Clown.
“If we look at more of a preventive campaign as opposed to an enabling campaign, I think it will offer an opportunity to have safer communities with fewer people who are dependable on these substances,” Boatwright told the Free Beacon.
Silly Sarge…. doesn’t he know that if the government focuses on these “marginalized” peoples it can also register them to vote and remind them which party gave them the shiny new crack pipe when it comes time to vote.
