White House Forced To Do Damage Control Amid “Crack Pipe” Scandal

Many Americans have lost their lives due to drug addiction. Yet, as drugs continue to claim the lives of so many people, the problem seems to be getting worse rather than better.

Biden, in particular, has worsened the drug crisis facing the United States due to his negligence on the US-Mexico border. As illegal immigration runs rampant and overwhelms Border Patrol agents, drugs aren’t so far behind.

However, the White House seems to have come up with a solution. Multiple reports indicated that Biden’s solution entailed spending millions of taxpayer dollars on “smoking kits” to supposedly help folks struggling with drug addiction consume substances in a “safe” fashion.

Many Americans unleashed criticism against the White House upon learning these smoking kits would contain crack pipes and predominantly be distributed to inner cities and minority communities.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, in the wake of this scandal, the Biden Administration has since come out and claimed they would not be giving crack pipes to drug addicts.

On Wednesday, the Department of Health and Human Services put out a statement about this matter. The statement explained the Administration’s alleged focus on “saving lives” and reducing the harm engendered by drugs.

HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra then declared that the federal government would not distribute crack pipes in any way, shape, or form.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki shared similar remarks earlier this week. During her standard media briefings, Psaki cited reports of crack pipe distribution from the federal government as “misinformation.”

Amid this statement, many Americans noted that Psaki didn’t detail all the kits approved by the White House.

In a nutshell, many Americans aren’t falling for the Biden Administration’s claim that crack pipes were never included in smoking kits going to inner cities.

Instead, the standard view is that the White House did, in fact, initially plan on distributing crack pipes. However, the massive blowback against this was enough for the Biden Administration to roll back and revise the plan.

Likewise, Biden has been criticized for not using federal funding to finance rehabilitation centers or otherwise help those struggling with addiction to overcome it. By handing out smoking kits to addicts, the White House created them, enabling destructive behaviors rather than assisting people to rise above them.

This latest scandal is just one of several incidents where the White House has been forced to clean up the messes they made.
