Drug vending machines —this is real.

According to a report from The New York Post, New York City has introduced its first drug vending machines for the city’s users; crack pipes, lip balm, and Narcan are available at the push of a button.

From The New York Post:

The machine looks like a typical snack vending contraption but is stacked with what health officials say are potential life-saving tools instead.

The available goods include the overdose-busting drug Naloxone, commonly known by the brand name Narcan, drug-test strips that detect fentanyl and “Safer Smoking” kits complete with a heavy stem pipe, mouthpiece and lip balm that can be used to smoke crack and crystal meth.

There also are “Safer Sniffing’’ kits and random assorted items such as condoms, tampons, nicotine gum and first-aid packages.

People don’t have to pay for the items; they simply punch in their zip code to get access.

While the first machine does not include syringes, future ones may include them, Vasan said.

New York City Health Commissioner Ashwin Vasan says future machines may include syringes.

“This is an important arrow in our quiver,’’ Vasan said of the vending machines. “It’s not the be-all and end-all solution, but it’s an important tool that says to New Yorkers, ‘Hey, we are going to bring the tools that saves lives to you.’ ”

2021 was a record year fo overdoses in the Big Apple; 2,668 drug deaths were recorded.
