A coalition that advocates for a safe recovery for drug addicts is urging President Joe Biden to not throw the backing of the federal government behind injection sites where junkies are allowed to shoot up under medical supervision.
NorthAmericaRecovers.org, which is a nonprofit umbrella organization bringing together more than 20 separate groups – including Mothers Against Drug Addiction and Deaths – has debuted a series of mobile digital ads in the nation’s capital using the president’s crack-huffing son to shame him into declining to back the sites, some of which are already operational in New York City.
“Please help my son escape addiction the way you helped Hunter,” reads the ad which features images of a mom and her homeless drug addict son, “Stop government drug sites.”

The ad campaign is designed to influence Biden and his Justice Department to consider whether the use of taxpayer money for federal-backed “supervised drug consumption sites” is a wise policy.
“President Biden will soon be making a decision on whether or not to legalize drug consumption rooms, or supervised injection sites, where taxpayer-funded healthcare workers supervise anyone over the age of 18 to inject or smoke fentanyl and other hard drugs, under federal law,” the group says on its website. “These sites allow people to enter and use illicit drugs, presumably as a safe alternative to using drugs on the streets. There are currently a few operating in the US already (e.g., New York City), in a legal gray area.”

“We as a coalition urge President Biden to reject these sites in favor of first creating a recovery-focused system for addressing our addiction crisis. This will entail allocating more sufficient funding to ensure access to evidence-based intervention, treatment, and recovery programs,” the group says. “Funding drug consumption sites puts the cart before the horse—at a time when treatment and recovery services are not resourced to anywhere-near adequate levels— and shifts our focus away from a recovery-oriented policy that enables more people to get off drugs and reshape their lives.”
“Furthermore, these sites are almost always unfairly situated in economically depressed areas, often communities of color, and further attract open-air drug selling, drug use, and increased crime,” North America Recovers added, pointing out the impact of drug abuse on the black and brown people whom the Democratic Party constantly pays lip service to.
Embattled Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has gone on record that the regime views the idea of government-funded shoot-up sites as being “very important,” a controversial stance that puts him at odds with those who believe that encouraging the use of illicit drugs is counterproductive.

“The reason I’m doing this is because I’m afraid that if Biden legalizes these so-called `supervised drug use sites, he will consign my son, and millions like him, to a life of addiction and homelessness,” said Jacqui Berlinn, the mother whose son is featured in the ad.
“The U.S. needs an addiction care system whose goal is recovery from addiction, not enabling addiction. We reduced cigarette smoking by eliminating special places for people to smoke, not by creating them. People recover from addiction in rehab clinics, not in bars,” Berlinn added.
Hunter Biden’s drug use is legendary with numerous videos of himself getting loaded included on the “laptop from hell” mixed in with the pornographic footage of him frolicking with prostitutes, and the strategy of using him to shame Biden into rejecting the drug injection sites could be an effective one.

North America Recovers describes itself on its website as “a nonpartisan coalition of community leaders, parents of the homeless, and recovering addicts seeking federal, state, and local actions that encourage recovery from—and end the enabling of—addiction, untreated mental illness, and homelessness.”
