Biden Signs Off On Heroin Sanctuary Cities: Running a Crackhouse is Illegal, But the Law No Longer Applies to the Crime Party

Sanctuary cities for illegal aliens aren’t new and exciting anymore. Truly progressive municipalities like New York City are instead becoming sanctuary cities for crack and heroin.
Decriminalizing drugs is already a popular movement, but sanctuary cities for heroin, like New York City, are going a step further by operating drug dens under the label “safe injection sites”.
There is nothing “safe” about shooting up heroin, but lefty politicians would like you to think so.
New York City’s government crackhouses look like libraries with free TVs and places to hang out. Users break off to go into booths like the kind that might house desktop computers or reading spaces in a library. But in government drug dens, they're places to shoot up, smoke, or do whatever they want. There's also a private "smoking room" for the bashful junkie.
The addicts enjoy free needles and hot towels that "really bring those veins up."
Health Commissioner Dr. Dave A. Chokshi described government funded drug dens as a "vital new service to keep New Yorkers healthy.” Nothing says keeping people healthy like letting them shoot heroin in between bouts of watching The View and The Bold and the Beautiful.
Running a crackhouse is illegal. The Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986 makes it a crime to "knowingly open, lease, rent, use, or maintain any place, whether permanently or temporarily, for the purpose of manufacturing, distributing, or using any controlled substance" punishable by a fine of $2 million and as much as 20 years in prison. And people continue to lose homes, businesses, and their freedom for violating the crackhouse law.
So why isn’t the FBI breaking down the doors of New York’s City Hall?
The Justice Department, during that brief four year period when it was actually enforcing criminal laws again, sued Philadelphia over a similar government crackhouse. The Third Circuit Court found that the facility obviously violated federal law, but Merrick Garland's corrupt DOJ has decided to sign off on government crackhouses the way that it did on illegal aliens.
Despite winning clear victories in court, Biden's DOJ now states that it's "evaluating supervised consumption sites, including discussions with state and local regulators about appropriate guardrails for such sites, as part of an overall approach to harm reduction and public safety."
All of this buzzword spin means that Biden is signing off on heroin sanctuary cities.
That’s not surprising for an administration that already funds the distribution of drug paraphernalia. The CDC’s partners include openly pro-drug groups that claim fentanyl can be safely used. The new pro-drug spin is that the only problem with doing any kind of drug is that the user might overdose and that with enough government crackhouses, that can be prevented.
Drug treatment facilities are giving way to drug use facilities in already troubled neighborhoods.
Heroin sanctuary cities are no longer fighting crackhouses and drug dens, they’re opening government drug dens funded by taxpayers that further devastate communities.
