crack pipe vending machines…

me and pipe machineThanks to all the positive feedback and appreciation for my work on the crack pipe vending machines.  I don’t often post about my day job as manager of the PHS Mobile Needle Exchange here, but there’s been lot of buzz about these, for better or worse.  The machines have been a key piece of the puzzle in keeping people in Vancouver from contracting HIV and Hep C, and I’m proud to have been a part of it.  We’ll keep advocating for free pipes to be more widely available, but in the meantime, they’re a pivotal healthcare device that helps stop the spread of disease.  You can read Garth Mullins’ brilliant first article on the machines here:
