“For us, this was about increasing access to safer inhalation supplies in the Downtown Eastside,” Kailin See, director of the DURC, told CTV Vancouver.


See explained selling crack pipes is a tactic to help stop the spread of diseases. She said the pipes are very durable and less likely to chip and cut drug users’ mouths, which helps stop the spread of communicable diseases including HIV and hepatitis C
