Fun Fact: intense dramatic turning actor Jack Lord was from Richmond Hill, Queens.
First things first now that this unfortunate series of traumatizing events in the five boroughs has reached a small milestone…
Mayor Bill de Blasio (the mayor of your city for readers from N.Y.C.) has decided to implement a plan for heroin addicts to shoot up their works in specialized facilities. This idea, that was featured in season 3 of “The Wire“, is an attempt to tamp down on overdose deaths and discourage junkies from shooting up on the streets and parks and in the privacy of their homes or in abandoned ones. It’s a response to thousand of O.D. deaths that outnumbered the total amounts of fatalities from murders and vehicular accidents even though this statistic wasn’t counted for the rosy celebratory announcement of (alleged) record breaking low crime stats last year by the mayor and the NYPD considering the federal illegality of the drug, the industry where it emanates from and the widespread crime that it fosters, like the desperate lengths addicts will do to get their fix like muggings and petty theft to murders ordered by drug lords and assaults and killings resulting from gangs fighting over territory for sales. Sites being considered are Gowanus in Brooklyn, Longwood in the Bronx, Washington Heights and Midtown West in Manhattan.
There is no doubt that the opioid epidemic has to be curbed and lives need to be saved, but the city can’t implement this without decriminalizing/legalizing the consumption, possession and selling of marijuana. It’s unjustly absurd that the city is going to allow heroin addicts special places to shoot up while there are still people being arrested for smoking and selling pot. Especially since the NYPD is still selectively targeting Blacks and Hispanics based on dubious phone call complaints about smoking outside, while wealthy hipsters are running a faux speakeasy selling weed and combining it with hard liquor for sale to wealthy majority White hipsters who buy and consume it in a house in Greenpoint with total impunity. (But don’t worry about them, because they are making drug abuse “elegant”).
This program is implemented in other countries around the world and is currently being considered in Seattle, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. But as is wont of Mayor de Blasio, and his delusion as a progressive superstar leader and his proclivity to spend lavishly, he’s going to jump the gun and be the first to start it this high risk program, and now he has the approval of Commissioner O’Neal despite observing that drug abuse and dealing was occurring off the facilities in two provinces in Canada.
And going by the fauxgressive mayor’s management of other crucial safety net programs like public housing and child services, he will probably fuck this one up too, piss a ton of money and human resources on it and will blatantly ignore any negative ramifications that will result when the sites officially open and have his aides cover up any incidents or hassles from the addicts and the pushers that will be loitering around these sites for a safe practically legal place to sell their product. While pot smokers have to continue to still worry about being caught, cuffed and imprisoned.
As long as pot remains illegal and in the same class of drug as heroin, these junkie wellness centers are full of shit and unfair. And shows that these so-called liberal leaders who are still wishy-washy on legalization and prefer to stall by ordering expensive redundant studies, don’t give a shit about sensible pot smokers and as citizens they are expendable. Particularly Black and Hispanic pot smokers. Maybe they’ll all get a card for their unnecessary troubles.
What drug decriminalization can be implemented to save society and what still can’t
In other city wide issues under the purview of Mayor de Blasio, in this city’s schools, attacks on teachers by students went up by 4.5% at a total of over 10,000 incidents, stats that are in utter contrast with Mayor de Blasio’s claims that schools have never been safer.
And if some teachers aren’t under enough stress dealing with wayward kids they also have to worry about their predatory horny faculty peers, as a report was released exposing 590 complaints of sexual harassment of teachers and workers for the Department of Education during de Blasio’s first term derived from a total report of 1,300 sexual harassment complaints from all city municipal agencies. Which this fucking mayor publicly and condescendingly dismissed as “hyper-complaint-dynamics”. Leaving no doubt that this deranged concoction term is behind any reason why cases in any city agency get ignored.
And robberies in the subway has gone up 54%. Now back to the five borough blotter.

To cap this post with some advice for our oblivious, ambitious and flawed (policy-making, politically and self) mayor,
The junk merchant doesn’t sell his product to the consumer, he sells the consumer to his product. He does not improve and simplify his merchandise. He degrades and simplifies the client.
