Biden Signs Off On Heroin Sanctuary Cities
Running a crackhouse is illegal, but the law no longer applies to the crime party.

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

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.

The government backed drug den in Harlem is a block away from two elementary schools.

Democrat city governments have gone from fighting to keep drug dealers out of schoolyards to setting up drug dens within a short walking distance of the neighborhood playground.

And the Biden administration has all but announced that it will sign off on these measures.

PayPal, which relentlessly cracks down on conservative fundraising, has allowed New York Harm Reduction Educators, one of the non-profits involved, to fundraise through its site. But then again NYHRE has already been funded by the CDC and HHS among other federal agencies and boasts corporate partners like Bank of America and Pfizer.

Much like teaching sex to kindergartners or supporting race riots, what was formerly a fringe radical outlier far to the left is now a mainstream government and corporate approved cause.

The government funded drug dens claim that they’re fighting overdoses even as overdoses continue to climb to shockingly high levels. The drug death rate in New York State shot up 71% from 2010 to 2015. In Manhattan they doubled, rose by 30% in Brooklyn, and 84% in the Bronx.

In 2016, 1,300 New Yorkers died of drug overdoses. Last year it was over 2,000. In just one year, from 2019 to 2020, overdose deaths rose by around a third citywide.

With 6 people dying a day, drugs are becoming a leading cause of deaths in New York City.

Facilitating drug use is murder. And yet the entire leftist political program from enabling homelessness to decriminalizing crime, and in particular drugs, has created this catastrophe.

A resolution from the New York City Board of Health claims that its endorsement of government crackhouses is grounded in its resolution wrongly declaring racism to be a “public health crisis” and implementing “anti-racism public health practices”.

Racism isn’t a public health crisis, cocaine and heroin are.

Advocates for heroin and cocaine sanctuary cities insist that the problem is that addicts use drugs unsafely because of systemic racism. There’s no safe way to use classes of drugs that are addictive and utterly destructive. An overdose is not just an accidental misuse, it’s the biochemical inevitability of drug addiction and tolerance. Having the government oversee addicts in welfare drug dens, ready to revive them if they overdose is not a plan, it’s a dystopian nightmare wrapped in Orwellian euphemisms that ends up killing the people it claims to save.

Sanctuary cities kill. Sanctuary cities for illegal aliens have enabled crimes that killed numerous Americans. Now sanctuary cities for drugs are devastating neighborhoods and destroying lives.

And the Biden administration is once again refusing to enforce the law and stop the dying.

The legalization and decriminalization of drugs has run in tandem with growing drug death rates. While Biden denies that he supports defunding the police, his administration continues to endorse and promote the pro-crime policies that are destroying cities, suburbs, and rural areas.

Even as the Biden administration seeks new ways to crack down on ordinary Americans, with new fines and new levels of surveillance, it’s refusing to enforce the law, one ratified by recent appeals decisions and Supreme Court sanction, because its own allies are the perpetrators.

Running a crackhouse is illegal under federal law, but the law no longer applies to the Left.

If you loved sanctuary cities where illegal aliens are free to drive drunk, rape, and kill, you’re going to love Biden’s heroin sanctuary cities where addicts converge at taxpayer-funded crackhouses and crimes are committed every day with the sanction of the party of crime.

This is the brave new world of the socialists who have taken almost complete control of the Democrat Party ... either directly, or indirectly through its power base. It is the exaltation of man over God: the belief that man's ideas can create a perfect world.

A Scripture springs to mind. Romans 1:22.

"Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

We are living in a fool's paradise.

I see a curious parallels where the US and USSR share the same problem: Undesirables + excess in our societies.

They, USSR, jails them then murders them in warfare.

We shoot them up with drugs and enable suicide.
I guess ours is the humane way?

I can't help believe that BigPHARMA is involved in some way.

Maybe all those lawsuits and civil fines . . . if heroin, etc. are legal, then as the replacement for their pain pills when they're cut off after getting hooked and not weaned by their doctors, maybe its harder for victims to sue the pharmaceutical companies and win. Same rationale about preventing large wrongful death settlements against docs, hospitals, health care systems, BigPHARMA, etc., and the medical malpractice insurance companies that pay some/all of the judgments. May also have to do with the fentanyl that comes from China. The US owes so much money to them, perhaps a payoff for them not to call in the loans.

Matthew6:33

Withstand in the evil day. Eph 6:13
Also follow the pharmakeia φαρμακεία

The KJV translates Strong's G5331 in the following manner: sorcery (2x), witchcraft (1x).
  1. the use or the administering of drugs
  2. poisoning
  3. sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it
  4. metaph. the deceptions and seductions of idolatry

φαρμακεία pharmakeía, far-mak-i'-ah; from G5332; medication ("pharmacy"), i.e. (by extension) magic (literally or figuratively):—sorcery, witchcraft.

[Gal 5:20 KJV]
20 Idolatry, witchcraft,[G5331] hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

[Rev 9:21 KJV]
21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries,[G5331] nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

[Rev 18:23 KJV]
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries[G5331] were all nations deceived.

There is no empirical evidence anywhere to suggest that such policies are effective at harm reduction, much less to get people clean and sober. I have always believed that there are larger sociopolitical and economic reasons behind such policies. And sadly, for many in the field of mental health fields, their implementation of such policies is more emotional and less reasoned. But then, I have seen a lot of useless therapeutic interventions introduced in the last 10 years specifically, that are given credence. And I've seen a lot of clinicians ignore empirical evidence in favor of said therapies, most of which are dripping in new-age thought.

We have all kinds of these policies down in Vancouver BC and other larger cities across BC and guess what, crime rates have soared, the number of addicts has increased in spite of spikes in death from overdoses and the drug dealers continue to do the revolving door in the justice system-- out within minutes, occasionally doing a little longer.

I wish they'd do some evidence based studies-- the real kind, where they actually look at the stats and if deaths are climbing in the vulnerable population because most addicts get there because of other types of abuse and pain done to them, then quit enabling the addictions, and start getting them help that actually works.

In my province of BC there is a backlog of addicts who desperately WANT to get into treatment facilities, but the money and compassion are misplaced in these safe injection sites etc and NOT on building and staffing treatment for those who want it, Jails for those who prey on them and those who refuse to try and rehab and prefer the addiction criminal behaviour spiral of death.
