The Biden administration is finalizing the necessary funding to give away crack pipes and other paraphernalia to drug addicts.
The Washington Free Beacon reports a $30 million grant for the Harm Reduction Program, which will begin in May and will provide funds to nonprofits and local governments to help make drug use safer for addicts.
It's all part of the administration's goal of advancing "racial equity."
The Department of Health and Human Services oversees the funding of the program, which includes money for syringes and "smoking kits/supplies."
A spokesman for the department told the Free Beacon that these kits will provide pipes for users to smoke crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine and "any illicit substance."
HHS said the kits aim to reduce the risks for those who smoke substances with glass pipes, which can lead to infections through cuts and sores.
Applicants for the grants are prioritized if they treat a majority of "underserved communities," including African-Americans and "LGBTQ+ persons," as established under President Joe Biden's executive order on "advancing racial equity."
