A major report broke earlier this week that had the entire country enraged.
It was reported that part of the $30 million in federal funding for a Biden “equity” Executive Order was going to provide drug paraphernalia to underprivileged communities.
After considerable pushback against the program, the Biden administration denies the report… sort of.
Yes and No
How suppling drug paraphernalia to communities most impacted by drug use is equity, I have no idea.
However, it does show precisely what Joe Biden thinks about our minority communities.
Cracking down on the drug trade? Nope!
Lockdown the border to the cartel cannot continue to bring drugs into the country? Nope!
Create better outreach and counseling programs? Nope!
Let’s provide needles and clean smoke kits to minority communities because they cannot afford to buy them on their own because of systemic racism in this country… that is what Joe Biden’s answer to the problem seems to be.
But, there is good news… the previous report that Biden would supply crack pipes to Hunter Biden’s fellow crackheads has been denied.
A statement by HHS Secretary Becerra and Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) Director Dr. Rahul Gupta stated that this administration is “focused on using our resources smartly to reduce harm and save lives.
“Accordingly, no federal funding will be used directly or through subsequent reimbursement of grantees to put pipes in safe smoking kits.”
The outlet that broke the initial story says that it is 100 percent a lie…
To be extra safe, we responded to confirm that this included pipes for smoking crack and meth. Exact words from the HHS spokesman:
"I wouldn’t limit to those two substances. It would reference 'any illicit substance.'"

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) believes the administration is just using wordplay here to deny what is really happening…
To be clear: @HHSGov is giving taxpayer dollars to organizations to distribute crack pipes on behalf of HHS.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has also pushed back, stating, “Government-funded drug paraphernalia is a slap in the face to the communities and first responders fighting against drugs flowing into our country from a wide-open southern border.
“If this is the president’s plan to address drug abuse, our nation is in serious trouble.”
Fox News also covered the report…
How do you feel about our government providing drug paraphernalia rather than addressing the actual issue at hand and contributing factors?
