They should just include crack pipes and syringes as a sort of welcoming gift in the government provided apartments that are going up in numerous locations that are intended to house the homeless.  I’m sure that nice touch will be greatly appreciated. It’s the humane way to handle things.

The U.S. murder rate rose 30% between 2019 and 2020 – the largest single-year increase in more than a century, according to data published this month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The findings align with a separate tabulation of the nation’s murder rate published in September by the FBI.

Who was president?

Crime only exists when Democrats are President.

Certainly, only when Democrats are President does an increase in crime mean anything.

This is often repeated but one of my favorite things about Nolebull813 is that he doesn't read an article and then rushes to ask "Is there anyone who can tell me how this is a good idea?!"

Despite the fact that this is a right-wing hack website and it cites another right-wing hack website, it actually *does* explain why it's being done.

Harm reduction and overdose prevention are real things and have worked in other places. Portugal has practically eliminated drug overdose deaths using these methods. Switzerland is doing the same thing.

But a cheap political point is far easier and far more attainable for dopes like Shyster Joe and Nolebull813 than understanding an issue.

Of course, all of that goes without mentioning the hatchet job that these right-wing loon websites do to actual news stories.

This one line in a 75-page document has caused every right-wing yellow journalist to write a similarly misleading story about crack pipes being distributed for "racial equity."

Its a rather innocuous bullet-point in a 20-point plan.

But not a single other bullet was mentioned in the article above.

Interesting.

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/biden-crack-pipes-racial-equity/

In order to place the safer smoking kit component of the grant in its proper context, and demonstrate that it was just one of 20 requirements set out in the NOFO, the following is the relevant section of the 75-page document, in full, with numbered requirements, abridged for the sake of brevity:

Grant funds must be used primarily to support the following required harm reduction activities:

  1. Assess organizational readiness and create a strategic action plan…
  2. Develop a sustainability plan…
  3. Develop policies and procedures to implement evidence-based trauma-informed practices…
  4. Distribute FDA-approved overdose reversal medication and deliver overdose prevention education to target populations…
  5. Establish processes, protocols, mechanisms for referral to treatment and recovery support services…
  6. Assemble a harm reduction advisory council…
  7. Designate staff…to provide program design, implementation, and evaluation…
  8. Purchase equipment and supplies to enhance harm reduction efforts, such as:
    1. Harm reduction vending machine(s)…
    2. Infectious diseases testing kits…
    3. Medication lock boxes
    4. FDA-approved overdose reversal medication
    5. Safe sex kits, including PrEP resources and condoms
    6. Safe smoking kits/supplies
    7. Screening for infectious diseases (HIV, sexually transmitted infections, viral hepatitis)
    8. Sharps disposal and medication disposal kits
    9. Substance test kits, including test strips for fentanyl and other synthetic drugs
    10. Syringes to prevent and control the spread of infectious diseases
    11. Vaccination services (hepatitis A, hepatitis B vaccination)
    12. Wound care management supplies [Emphasis is added].

Here's an argument for harm reduction methods by the leftist think tank *checks notes* the Cato Institute.

Harm Reduction: Shifting from a War on Drugs to a War on Drug‐Related Deaths

Policymakers can reduce overdose deaths and other harms stemming from nonmedical use of opioids and other dangerous drugs by switching to a policy of “harm reduction” strategies. Harm reduction has a success record that prohibition cannot match. It involves a range of public health options. These strategies would include medication‐assisted treatment, needle‐exchange programs, safe injection sites, heroin‐assisted treatment, deregulation of naloxone, and the decriminalization of marijuana. Though critics have dismissed these strategies as surrendering to addiction, jurisdictions that have attempted them have found they significantly reduce overdose deaths, the spread of infectious diseases, and even the nonmedical use of dangerous drugs.

Handing people needles and crackpipes doesn’t save them. It’s keep them getting closer to dying. These people should be arrested for drug crimes and rehabilitated. You can’t shoot up in jail. Keep them in there until they are clean. Get them treatment inside and help them get back into society with job programs. 
 

This whole enabling society to keep doing bad is one of the biggest issues today by far.

Many who prefer stigmatizing rather than tolerating drug use7 criticize harm reduction as “a signal of defeat.”8 But harm reduction has a success record that prohibition cannot match. Decades of experience in several developed nations show harm-reduction strategies reduce overdose deaths, the spread of infectious diseases, and, in many cases, the nonmedical use of dangerous drugs.9

You can word anything different that is fucking stupid but it’s still a stupid idea. 
 

You know come to think of it, Hitler wasn’t a genocidal maniac killing millions. He was just reducing human carbon emissions, and trying to help cool down the earth. He was one of the pioneers of environmental activism.

Good, provably effective methods are considered stupid by stupid people.

Much like dumb and provably ineffective methods like arrest them and then yell at them to stop doing drugs are considered good by those very same stupid people.

These programs work, obviously, which is why idiots oppose them.

The 'Safe Supply' Movement Aims to Curb Drug Deaths Linked to the Opioid Crisis

In the early ‘90s, when Switzerland was dealing with a growing heroin epidemic, it began making methadone available. It launched a heroin prescription program for some users in an effort to curb overdose deaths, HIV infections, and public drug use. As these programs have grown, the rate of new heroin users has declined along with overdose deaths, HIV rates, and crime. Other countries, including the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Canada, launched similar programs.

As crime control is mainly a local issue, where did the murder rates spike and who runs those places?
