A new bill introduced by two Republican congressmen labeled the Hunter Act aims to prevent the use of public money to fund a federal crack pipe distribution program.
On Friday, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) revealed she and Rep. Dan Bishop (R-N.C.) have put forth legislation to block the use of taxpayer funds for a $30 million HHS grant program that would provide local governments with “smoking kits/supplies” to smoke crack cocaine. “The federal government should NEVER be funding crack pipes with our hard-earned tax dollars,” Boebert tweeted Friday regarding the Halting the Use of Narcotics Through Effective Recovery Act , or “HUNTER” Act. “That’s why I’ve just introduced the HUNTER Act with @RepDanBishop. Enough craziness!” The federal government should NEVER be funding crack pipes with our hard-earned tax dollars.
That’s why I’ve just introduced the HUNTER Act with @RepDanBishop .
Enough craziness! https://t.co/hrdKRNTbol — Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) February 11, 2022 The bill aims “To prohibit the use of Federal funds to purchase, or support the purchase of, drug paraphernalia,” adding that the term “paraphernalia” refers to “crack pipes, harm reduction vending machines, syringes, and safe smoking kits and supplies.”
The bill’s acronym – a nod to President Biden’s degenerate son “Hunter,” of whom embarrassing photos surfaced during the 2020 presidential campaign showing him smoking crack – was not lost on Boebert.
“I like the HUNTER Act,” Boebert told Fox News , “because it was a better acronym than Stop Paying to Subsidize Biden’s Son’s Drug Addiction act. That didn’t really flow. I think tax dollars have been on the hook for Hunter’s addictions long enough.”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
