I Prayed have prayed
Lord, please prevent our federal government from promoting policies that advance the distribution of drug paraphernalia or the use of harmful and illegal drugs.

President Joe Biden’s administration is spending $30 million to distribute things like crack pipes to advance “racial equity” as part of a “Harm Reduction Plan.”

The American Rescue Plan, which passed the Senate with a tie-breaking vote from Vice President Kamala Harris, provides the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) funding to carry out the multimillion-dollar grant program.

The grant program references Biden’s executive order 13985 titled “Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government” that he signed on his first day in office.

The program accepted applications from nonprofit organizations and local governments until Monday, with funds scheduled to be distributed in May. The federal government will give approved entities funds to make drug use safer and to advance “racial equality.” Applicants who treat drug users in “underserved communities” are prioritized to receive funding. “Underserved communities” refers to black, Latino, LGBTQ, and other minority groups who have been “adversely affected by persistent poverty or inequality.”

According to the grant document:

The purpose of the program is to support community-based overdose prevention programs, syringe services programs, and other harm reduction services. Funding will be used to enhance overdose and other types of prevention activities to help control the spread of infectious diseases and the consequences of such diseases for individuals with, or at risk of developing substance use disorders.

The grant document encourages funds to be spent on “safe smoking kits/supplies,” among other things. An HHS spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon that pipes for users to smoke crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, or “any illicit substance” are included in these kits.

“Syringes,” “safe sex kits,” and “harm reduction vending machine(s)” are also on the list of materials entities should purchase with grant funds….

Federal law prohibits the sale or distribution of drug paraphernalia unless authorized by the government. Democrat strongholds like San Francisco and Seattle have implemented their own crack pipe distribution plans. However, other municipalities have stayed away from the idea. For example, Louisville, Kentucky, briefly allowed stores to sell drug kits before ultimately banning the sale of them.

News of Biden’s crack pipe distribution plan sent social media users into a frenzy.

“So the Biden Administration thinks it’s a great idea to give out crackpipes but definitely not Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine. Let that sink in,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr. What are your thoughts on this article? Let us know in the comments below.

Having ears, he hears not; having eyes, he does not see that this will only weaken our nation and leave it open to a vulnerability of critical destruction.

    Of course he sees. That’s the call and the purpose. He is bound by China.
    Merciful Lord Jesus, may all of these blinded by greed and corruption who are willing to sell out our country, be touched and awakened to who You are and receive Your gift of repentance and redemption. My heart breaks for they know not what they do. In Jesus’ precious Name. Amen
