San Francisco DPH Confirm Homeless in Hotels being given free alcohol and drugs
A man who goes by T Wolf on Twitter wrote:
I just found out that homeless placed in hotels in SF are being delivered Alcohol, Weed and Methadone because they identified as an addict/alcoholic for FREE. You’re supposed to be offering treatment. This is enabling and is wrong on many levels.
The San Francisco Department of Public Health appeared to confirm this and wrote back:
These harm reduction based practices, which are not unique to San Francisco, and are not paid for with taxpayer money, help guests successfully complete isolation and quarantine and have significant individual and public health benefits in the COVID-19 pandemic.
The San Francisco Department of Public Health did not mention who is paying for these alcohol and drugs if not taxpayers.
