The Glass Pipe is the quintessential smoking tool. It’s convenient, portable, and gives you amazing airflow for incredibly good hits. Most people associate a Glass Pipe with smoking cannabis or maybe smoking tobacco. However, along with these classic herbs, many other herbs and products can also be smoked with a Glass Pipe, including some you’ve likely never even heard of.

And you’re saying that this is the motivation behind the supply of the glass pipes in these smoking kits? Because it’s the quintessential smoking tool? And the Chore Boy is the quintessential filter for the quintessential smoking tool? Isn’t that just a little disingenuous?

I have news for you. The glass pipes in these smoking kits are crack pipes, and are being, at least in part, being paid for by tax dollars.

For those doubting the authenticity of the O/P article, here's another. Psaki and the rest of the drug-use enablers she lies for know exactly what's in those kits.


At Charm City Care Connection, a nonprofit that provides harm reduction services to combat "oppression," an employee said that identification is not required to receive a smoking kit, but did ask for initials, a date of birth, and zip code before handing over two smoking kits containing glass crack pipes as well as Chore Boy copper mesh, a cleaning product used to hold the crack rock at the end of the pipe.

The bag included directions for how to use the pipe, heat-resistant mouthpieces, wooden sticks for packing the mesh into the pipe, and alcohol wipes. Most importantly, the organization provides all drug paraphernalia recipients an "Authorized Harm Reduction Program Participant Card" that serves as a get-out-of-jail-free card to show to law enforcement, because the paraphernalia is otherwise illegal in the state of Maryland.

Charm City Care Connection receives funding from both the Baltimore city and Maryland state governments, as well as at least $200,000 from left-wing billionaire George Soros's Open Society Foundations as part of the organization's "Addiction and Health Equity Program." According to the group's disclosures, it received $200,000 in government grants in 2019. It has a partnership with Johns Hopkins University and half of its board of directors work for the university.

Yes, this whole thing is a spinoff of needle exchange programs aimed at reducing community spread of disease, the needle users get free clean needles and don't start local epidemics.
I don't care if crack addicts get cold sores, personally.

I wonder what legal obstacles would exist if/when these non-profits give a minor drug paraphernalia without parental consent.

Truth has been evident in America for Centuries and Decades, of the "wide spread ignorance in right wing ideology". The Southern State have demonstrated it overtly throughout all these generations. They pass it from one generation to the next!!!! It's why "States which claim themselves Republican Led, are ALWAYS PROMOTING CONFLICT about something. "EVERYDAY".
These type of "white people" are victims of "White Nationalist Delusions" with some fictional madness, to think they are a Model for society.
Far left liberal claims Republicans are always promoting conflict... proceeds to bitch incoherently about white people. 🤣

So, the Free Beacon that actually investigated it and reported crack pipes were included in their so-called safe drug kits were trashed starting with the WH for telling the truth. An administration that chose to take taxpayers dollars to assist drug addicts with their addictions instead of taking strong efforts in getting them off the street and helping them to get clean. An administration because their feckless handling of the border where fentanyl is flooding our country and is now the number one cause of death among our teens to ages in the 30's. What the Hell is wrong with these people coming up with these asinine policies?

Free Beacon is not a source I would hold out for being either truthful or unbiased. Nor, considering the emotive language without actually backing up the claims with evidence will I trust the opinion of the editor if the hill.

Free Beacon was correct on their reporting. So, sit and spin. Deal with it.

But the crack pipes were part of these so called kits. pffft!!!
That claim is not supported by the two sources given. The claim is there, but the evidence for it is not.

Better get the 'Disinformation Governance Board' right on that right away. Psaki clearly was spreading disinformation, as does most of this administration.

Lmao, so the free baccon, full of experts on crack addiction and drug use, has told us that clean pipes are in fact crack pipes.

Jeeeez, the QAnon crowd sure is stupid. Y'all heard me.

What it?

No, it was not

From the 'fact check'.... quotes from the administration.

While some of the money from the Biden administration's grant program is tabbed for supplies like sterile syringes and "safe smoking kits," officials say distributing or funding crack pipes aren't part of the program. Both the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services have said crack pipes were never part of the plan.

"The Biden-Harris administration has never authorized the use of federal funding for smoke pipes and will not in the future," Sarah Lovenheim, the agency's assistant secretary for public affairs, told USA TODAY in an email.

In a joint statement issued Feb. 9, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra and Office of National Drug Control Policy Director Dr. Rahul Gupta said the harm-reduction grants won't be used to purchase pipes.

"No federal funding will be used directly or through subsequent reimbursement of grantees to put pipes in safe smoking kits," the statement reads.

But the Biden administration's grant program never included pipes, White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Feb. 9.

"(Crack pipes) were never a part of the kit; it was inaccurate reporting," she said during a press briefing. "A safe smoking kit may contain alcohol swabs, lip balm, other materials to promote hygiene and reduce the transmission of diseases like HIV and hepatitis."

And, guess what. Not one of those is funding for crack pipes. It is grants to states for the states to deciede. So, you lied.

Yes, it's crack pipes. Pipes that can be used for crack or other drugs.

I put the quotes in bold and underlined for a reason here. The administration was obviously reading from their talking points, and knew that yes, 'crack pipe' is just a description, and a glass pipe can be used for crack OR many other drugs. That's why they didn't say 'crack pipe'. They didn't want to pay into labeling.

What they said was that they would not pay for "smoke pipes" (Lovenheim), "pipes" (Dr. Gupta), and "pipes" (Psaki), Those quotes were used by USA Today in the 'fact check'. Turns out, all three lied.

You keep saying that.. but your statements lie. I would love to see where 'smoking kits' are even mentioned in the grant.

The point is federal money is eventually buying crack pipes which are being distributed at street level to addicts. Deny that.

you’re splitting hairs. The point is federal money paid for crackpipes which were given to crack addicts. The safe smoking kits came with glass pipes, and chore boy which is used in crack pipes. Federal money paid for it and now the Bidenicks know it. You know the rest.

So then, you don’t believe the news report? Or you only believe what Jen Psaki said? The Washington Beacon, and several of its reporters made up the whole story? There’s no Safe Smoking kits to be had? Or is it that you don’t believe federal funds were used to buy the smoking kits?

Just what is it that you don’t believe? Where is the misrepresentation you accused me of?

Personal attacks aren't tolerated here.

BTW, cannibis is legal in my state, both for medical and recreational purposes, so spare me the fake sanctimony.
It wasn't a personal attack, it was 2 factual statements by him. about himself.....

It's odd who the left fights for evil politicians when they keep addicts addicted to their vices!

But the left is pretty freakin' Gaslit!
