Crack Pipe Vending Machine


Run by the non-profit Portland Hotel Society, which helps people with mental health and addiction issues, the vending machine is the first in Canada to dispense crack pipes as part of a campaign to reduce the spread of disease among drug users in Vancouver.  Diseases like hepatitis C, HIV, pneumonia and tuberculosis can be spread by sharing chipped or broken crack pipes with people who have sores and burns on their lips. The vending machines allow them to buy as many pipes as they need for 25 cents each.
