WOBURN — An in-depth investigation has recently confirmed what Democrats under President Joe Biden have been denying for months: pipes used to smoke crack and crystal meth are included in taxpayer-funded “safe smoking kits” and are being distributed in Boston, among other American cities.



Per a Washington Free Beacon report:



“In Boston’s South End neighborhood, a man was seen injecting a needle into his calf about 30 feet away from a police car outside the Access, Harm Reduction, Overdose Prevention and Education facility, which is run by the Boston Public Health Commission.



Inside the facility, an employee recorded our initials, date of birth, housing situation, and HIV status before offering an array of drug equipment. The bin of crack pipes was visible just above a bin of syringes labeled “biggie smalls” and “ultra fine,” different options for injecting drugs into different parts of the body.



“One pipe per person, once a day,” a worker, who emerged with a crack pipe, meth pipe, and additional drug accessories such as Chore Boy copper, told the Free Beacon.



An employee said the facility no longer offers get-out-of-jail-free cards because the police don’t arrest people for drug possession any longer.



“The Democrats have gone from handing out free cell phones under President Obama to handing out free crack pipes under President Biden,” Massachusetts Republican Party Chairman Jim Lyons said Friday. “Meanwhile, there is a nationwide shortage of baby formula unless you’re illegally crossing the southern border and of course, that’s being distributed free-of-charge, but not to law-abiding American citizens.



“This is how atrocious the Democrats’ priorities are. There were more than 1,100 deaths in Massachusetts attributed to crack-cocaine and crystal meth use alone in 2020, and the Democrats’ response to this crisis is to enable more addicted users and empower more illegal dealers.



“They have no shame, none whatsoever.”
