SF Provides Room Service Booze, Drugs to Homeless

2020 May 7

California goes out of its way to attract the homeless. Not only does it have good weather and beautiful scenery, but it has great benefits which serves as a magnet to attract homeless from across the country.

In the battle to beat Los Angeles, San Francisco knows it needs a special effort. Since San Francisco doesn’t have LA’s great weather it is working to attract more homeless with really great perks. Not only is it providing the homeless with hotel rooms during the coronavirus pandemic, but is is also providing room service drugs, alcohol and tobacco.

Question: Does anyone actually believe the free hotel rooms will end when the coronavirus pandemic does?

San Francisco is using private donations to deliver alcohol, tobacco and medical marijuana to homeless addicts staying in city-leased hotels during the coronavirus pandemic.

As of Wednesday there are about 270 people, mostly homeless, staying in hotel rooms to recover from COVID-19 or to wait out possible exposure to the virus.

So far, 11 people have received alcohol, 27 have received tobacco and five have received medical marijuana, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

City officials said that private donations pay for the items, and that helping manage nicotine, opioid and alcohol cravings ensures that recovering people don’t go out and possibly infect others.

Reports of the program first emerged last week when Thomas Wolf, a case manager who works with addicts in San Francisco, mentioned it in a tweet to the city.

‘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,’ he wrote.

‘You’re supposed to be offering treatment. This is enabling and is wrong on many levels. @SF_DPH @sfbos @LondonBreed.’

The San Francisco Department of Public Health confirmed the report on Twitter Wednesday.

‘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,’ it wrote.

Bad news for Oregon fans. No, the girls aren’t covering up. It’s not that bad.

    While we’re on the subject of left coast, left wing craziness, Oregon’s governor is working hard to out-Whitmer Whitmer. Governor Kate Brown wants athletic events with large crowds suspended through September:

    Two thoughts:
    1. Only six states (all with smaller populations) have fewer deaths per million than Oregon
    2. The Oregon Ducks cheerleaders are really hot and likely the best (least) dressed in college football

    The competition to out-crazy each other is driving Democrat Governors even crazier. I gotta say, delivering drugs and booze to homeless people you’re housing in hotels should set Newsome up for win!

    What freaks me out is they are actually using the term ‘guest’.

    3,

    Want ‘crazy’? Trump ought to fire Director Wray and install Gen. Flynn in the post. That would freak all the right people.

    Won’t happen but a guy can dream.

    Does anyone actually believe housing the homeless in hotels will end when the coronsvirus pandemic has ended? Can you think of any welfare benefit that has ever been taken back.

    Undoubtedly, since San Francisco doesn’t want these people to leave the hotels, it is also providing food.

    What will it take to make the hotels habitable again? Hopefully the hotel owners have something in their contracts that the city will be responsible for any damage,

    the media is gloating over the 14.7% unemployment rate…hoping the American people will forget that the economy was CLOSED, and is being KEPT closed by morons like Newsome. More & more States are opening back up, so the media is ramping up the FEAR factor. The only hope the Democrats have in this election year is to completely collapse the economy…they are getting close.

    A dangerous virus was turned into a DEADLY PANDEMIC by the media/Democrat/Leftist cabal. I know so many previously reasonable people who are STILL regurgitating “statistics” proven FALSE 30 days ago

    The Democrats are trying to dump another TRILLION DOLLARS into a “stimulus” package. Not to stimulate the economy, but to encourage people NOT to go back to work. Period.

    You can guarantee another “stimulus” package will be passed. This time several months $$$$, not a one time only payment like before.

    Ventura, CA is going to start yanking people out of their homes shortly. So when the SWAT team shoots the homeowner dead are they going to count that as a CoVid death stat??

    Former FBI agents and federal prosecutors tell RealClearInvestigations that the documents show suspiciously irregular handling and editing of Flynn’s FD-302 form, the official document used to record what happens in FBI interviews.

    https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2020/05/08/new_red_flags_emerge_from_fbis_handling_of_flynn_case_123520.html

    The first indication of reform at the FBI must be the elimination of the form 302 that is used. Its voice recording or nothing.

    11,

    Here’s a partial answer — https://www.zerohedge.com/political/whats-behind-trumps-strategic-pivot

    But however many victims succumb to this pandemic, it is going to end, and America is going to be reopened. The closer we are to both goals by Nov. 3, the better Donald J. Trump’s chances of retaking the oath on Jan. 20, 2021.

    That’s the way Trump is betting.

    If Trump pulls that off and sinks the Dims in their own lockdown it will be a political move equivalent to Washington crossing the Delaware.

    drdog09 #20 –

    Whenever the lockdown ends there will be a spike in coronavirus confirmed cases and deaths, whether it’s next week or in November. That’s a given.

    “Won’t happen but a guy can dream.”

    Yeah it would require a non-treasonous Senate so it’ll never happen.

    How about something that actually could work, fire Wray NOW and put Grenell in there though the election season, since he’ll not be the acting DNI much longer as the senate is poised to confirm another useless insider Trump nominated for the position. Grenell is already a confirmed person so they can’t stop it, he can act like the floating cabinet member moving from agency to agency spreading sunlight for what is it 180 days at a time?

    On slightly positive note, left the house tonight…
    Bars, and restaurants around me (and mean beyond the FF joints) all open, not very busy but open at least. local qt – 10\12 people only masks I saw was from employees working the counter, figured 50 the customers would have one, nope they’re like me fuck-that-noise.
    JimmyJohn open again so bought something, McDonalds was open… with 1/2 a menu (wtf?) and no fries… read that right…no fries? da fuq? I guessing that’s just a local store fuckup or something – the fries that is, they haven’t had steak for steak-egg-cheese stuff for a month.

    11 – Sign off on something close to what they want and pile on more debt that will not even be toward growth or asset oriented spending, if recent history is any guide.

    15 – Fuck another package, fuck everyone including DT that supports one, not another fucking dime till all restrictions are gone, and even then mostly fuck no.

    18 – Gore and AdamShit need to get a room with no windows together, and then I’ll happily be the one to turn on the gas. yeah I’m in a mood tonight. 😉

    24 – Ok I called that wrong, thought they might squeek by the june debt payment without it, guess not. Oh well.

    ~15% UE… and I don’t even want to look at the real shadow stats, needless to say add 5% or more.

    NY wants to follow CA into shitholedom … more worrysome is the non-NY related scrap about Eric Schmidt and DoD, love to know why Trump lets that go on, let alone why he lets assholes looking to fk him over and engorge themselves like Cuban anywhere near taskforce(s).
