White House SCANDAL – New “Crack Pipe” Discovery!
(RightWing.org) – The Biden administration has repeatedly denied that it’s handing out free crack pipes to drug addicts. Curious journalists investigated what exactly is being handed out. Now they have a lot of crack pipes…
The White House said safe smoking kits don’t have crack pipes in them.
So @FreeBeacon went out to see for our selves.

In February, we reported that an investigation by the Washington Free Beacon that discovered the administration was spending $30 million of taxpayers’ money on “safe smoking kits” for drug addicts that would include crack pipes. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki quickly denied the story, insisting that the simple glass pipes “were never a part of the kit; it was inaccurate reporting.” She went on to stress that federal funding wouldn’t be used, directly or indirectly, for crack pipes. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra and drug czar Rahul Gupta also denied that free pipes are being provided. Finally, the liberal media jumped in, publishing a series of articles dismissing the claim.
Undeterred, the Free Beacon decided to have a look at the safe smoking kits themselves. They visited the health centers or government agencies that distribute the kits in five cities — Boston, Washington, DC, Baltimore, New York City, and Richmond — then took a look inside.
All five contained crack pipes.
Many medical professionals argue that people will use drugs anyway and that helping them do it more safely reduces the cost to society. Maybe there’s a legitimate argument to be had about whether this is a good use of taxpayers’ money. But the Biden administration should try to win that argument before it spends our money on crack pipes while dishonestly insisting that it isn’t.
