Biden Administration Considers Allowing ‘Safe Injection’ Sites

https://dailycaller.com/

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is considering a reversal of policy that would permit people to use drugs at certain locations, the Associated Press reported Monday.

The Biden administration indicated that it could allow cities to open so-called “safe injection” sites, where drug users can use narcotics in the presence of staff who can react to overdoses, the AP reported.

The DOJ was considering regulations for safe injection facilities in the wake of New York City opening two sites in November 2021, the AP reported.

“Given your mandate to enforce federal law, I write to ask for your commitment to close these sites and prevent this dangerous plan from expanding,” New York state Rep. Nicole Malliotakis wrote in a Nov. 30 letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, adding that she feared inaction would result in encouraging the use of narcotics and damage the quality of life for residents.

The Trump administration won at the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit against a plan by a non-profit to open sites in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during its last days in office, according to Findlaw.com.

The Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of the ruling last October, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Drug overdoses killed over 100,000 people in the U.S. during a 12-month period ending in April 2021, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention release, an increase of over 28% from the same period ending in April 2020.

  1. Government sanctioned shooting galleries. What a dumbass. I am sorry, I tried to edit that, but there’s just no other word for it he is a dumbass.

  2. Part of the continuing plan by the Democrats to break down our society and destroy America from within.

  3. So wrong. Ol’ joe and partners will be owners of druggie arcades all over the place. Maybe let the cartels in to set up kiosks to sell designer drugs, too. They’ll be supervised so they’ll need a place to rehab for a while. Till the next time. What could go wrong? The first step in legalizing hard drugs. A real stupid idea like many of ol’ joe’s ideas.
