The Biden Administration has been accused of not helping our economy thrive. Natural gas and oil prices are skyrocketing, and grocery stores are empty. Even if you do find something at the store, there’s not enough staff to help you at the checkout. With the BBB plan adding dental insurance to Medicare, there was a glimmer of hope that Biden would help our nation’s seniors. Something they could smile about has been placed on the back burner.
So, what free stuff has Biden given us since coming into the office? At-home Covid-19 tests (But only three per household… sorry, families of four!) and now he is sponsoring an initiative that offers our communities free crack pipes and condoms.
The Department of Health and Human Services has planned to use $9.75 million for ‘harm reduction in communities. They want to focus on disease control and reducing the number of overdose deaths. Right out of the gate, the first challenge was distribution. How do we safely provide people with needles, pipes, and condoms? Vending machines! The best and safest way to buy a bag of chips or a “safe smoking kit.”
The equipment and supplies listed in this program grant are Infectious disease test kits, FDA-approved overdose reversal medication (because our government would never push something that’s not FDA approved), condoms, safe smoking kits, substance test kits, syringes, and medical disposal kits for after use of the needles. These vending machines will be a one-stop-shop for all your addiction needs, safe and easy.
You’ll have supplies for before, during, and after your drug use. Substance test kits will even tell you if you’re getting the best quality product and the safe smoking kits allow you not to get covid while you share your crack pipe with a pal. They will also offer a resource called PrEP which can stop the transmission of HIV. If that doesn’t work, then condoms are available.
The bill also allows for funds to go toward a communication campaign focused on reducing the stigma related to harm reduction campaigns. So, we are spending money to deceive the public into believing we are spending money adequately and helpfully to help our communities thrive. Drug addiction is a disease and something that is plaguing our country now. The deaths are not due to the lack of users’ ability to find a clean needle or share a pipe. Fake versions of oxycodone are being trafficked through our open borders every day, and the ability to get opioids is unbelievably easy. For the US government to help its citizens use drugs more effectively is a slap in the face to every taxpayer.
