Two Maine organizations slated to receive funding from a controversial Biden administration grant program for groups that support a "harm reduction" approach to drug treatment are actively distributing crack pipes to addicts, the Free Beacon learned at visits to these sites.

The Church of Safe Injection, which bills itself as a "nonprofit that fights for the health, rights, and dignity of people who use drugs (PWUD)," will receive funding through a $1.2 million grant the Biden administration awarded to a coalition of Maine groups. A Free Beacon reporter last week picked up a crack pipe and meth pipe at its Lewiston, Maine, office. The organization did not provide a smoking kit, which often includes a mouthpiece, copper wool, and alcohol wipes along with the pipe.

 

Maine Access Points, another organization set to receive funding through the grant, provided a Free Beacon reporter a bag of a dozen crack pipes in Sanford, Maine, along with foil and a smoking kit that contained a mouthpiece, copper scrubber, lip balm, and instructions on how to smoke crack cocaine. The organization also handed out three meth pipes, a snorting kit, naloxone, fentanyl test strips, and a condom. Maine Access Points has a phone number for each of its five harm reduction facilities in the state. When a Free Beacon reporter texted to ask if the Sanford location distributed crack pipes, an employee responded, "Yes."

The explanation emerging from the organizations—which cop to distributing crack pipes and receiving taxpayer funding, but insist they are not using taxpayer funds to purchase the crack pipes—paints a far messier picture than the Biden administration's haughty dismissal of initial reports on the grant program as "misinformation.":snip:

California passes law creating safe injection sites for drug users

California could soon allow sanctioned drug consumption sites in certain cities under a proposal headed for Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk.

 

The bill, Senate Bill 57, would allow Oakland and the cities and counties of both San Francisco and Los Angeles to operate overdose prevention programs, which would include a “hygienic space supervised by trained staff” where people can use drugs and obtain “sterile consumption supplies.” City and county officials must hold a public meeting before approving an overdose prevention program.

The state Senate sent the bill to Newsom’s desk in a 21-11 vote on Monday.

Supporters of the bill see the measure as a way to address California’s overdose death crisis. In 2021, California recorded over 6,800 opioid-related overdose deaths, which translates to a crude mortality rate of 17.8 per 100,000 residents – an increase of 109% from 2019, according to the state’s overdose surveillance dashboard.:snip:

Right, This Will Work. Because Junkies are well known for 'painting inside the lines".
