There Are Now Vending Machines for Crack Pipes

And you thought a quarter wouldn't buy you anything these days.

The first-ever crack pipe vending machine has debuted in Canada — and it surprisingly isn’t in Toronto.

A nonprofit installed two of the dispensers in Vancouver to limit the health risks involved in crack use. Vice reports, “The intense heat and repeated usage that comes with crack addiction can quickly wear pipes down to jagged nubs.” This helps proliferate the spread of Hepatitis C and HIV.

With 200 pipes each, sold at 25 cents a pop, the machines get refilled every five days. There’s even a marketing strategy. “We packaged a crack pipe in polka dots and people were very intrigued by it and wondered what it was,” Drug Users Resource Centre director Kailin See told The Globe and Mail. “It was a hit right away.”

And you thought you couldn’t get anything for a quarter anymore.

It would be easier to legalize most hard drugs in America under a "red light district" sort of thing. Keep it in where the adults can play but it will help keep it out of communities at least a little bit, we could tax it, and create more jobs in the medical field by building cheaper rehab facilities, mental health facilities and places that can manufacture these drugs in a safer environment and can even try to mitigate some of the effects of these drugs. If you want total freedom to destroy your body, I think we should give people a place to do it and make it safer and away from communities such as school and tight knit suburbs etc... Cut down Cartel profits by legalizing it, and let uncle sam collect his buck. I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to follow in Canada's footsteps.
