San Francisco Provides Alcohol, Cigarettes, Marijuana to Homeless Because COVID-19

After California has used liberal policies to attract substance-abusing derelicts from across the country and the world, then has used COVID-19 as a pretext to put them up in hotels (including luxury hotels on a coercive basis), how are the homeless to occupy their time while cooped up inside? Partying is how. They can drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, indulge in “medical cannabis,” and more, with party supplies provided by Big Government.

I swear this is from the San Francisco Chronicle, not the Babylon Bee:

San Francisco’s health department confirmed Wednesday that the city was administering alcohol, tobacco, medical cannabis and other substances in an effort to prevent a handful of people quarantined or isolating in city-leased hotels from going outside to get the substances themselves.

The Department of Public Health delivers the free booze and pot to the derelicts’ free hotel rooms. Supposedly this is financed by private donations.

Marijuana is illegal under federal law, but federal law does not apply to California, as we know from the way it thumbs its nose at immigration law.

It isn’t just San Fransicko:

Alameda, Santa Clara and Contra Costa counties are also using a harm reduction approach in their hotels, administering medications to keep addicts stable, according to officials there. A program similar to San Francisco’s is also in place in King County, Wash.

“Harm reduction” is the preferred euphemism for providing alcohol to drunks, drugs to drug fiends, et cetera. Progressive policies require euphemisms, usually of the Orwellian variety, because even some liberals would balk at the sheer lunacy of what they are doing if straightforward language were used to describe it.

On a tip from Chris Neilson.
