**New York City takes a controversial approach to combat the worsening drug crisis by installing vending machines that provide free drug paraphernalia, including crack pipes, in some of the most drug-infested areas.**

New York City officials recently adopted a radical measure aimed at curbing the troubling rise of drug overdoses. In a move that has raised eyebrows across the political spectrum, the city has installed vending machines containing drug-related paraphernalia in four areas particularly affected by rampant drug use. These machines contain free Narcan, an overdose-reversing medication that could save lives. However, other controversial free items available from these vending machines include heavy stem pipes that can be used to smoke crack or crystal meth.

The startling new strategy represents an astonishing admission of defeat from the city’s leadership, as it seems to encourage rather than deter the consumption of dangerous substances. In addition to drug-use paraphernalia, the vending machines also contain essential hygiene and healthcare items such as condoms, tampons, nicotine gum, and first-aid kits.

City Health Department authorities are concerned that 2022 could see the highest-ever number of drug-related fatalities in New York, with the latest statistics indicating that the city is losing a life to drugs every three hours. Dr. Ashwin Vasan, Health and Mental Hygiene Commissioner, described the bleak reality at a press conference held near one of the newly installed vending machines.

Critics argue that the city’s decision to fill vending machines with crack pipes and other drug-smoking equipment is not only counterproductive, but also sends a disturbing message of acceptance and even encouragement
