    I honestly think that's a great idea. People used to come into my work paying with an EBT card (food stamps) their eyes would be so blood shot and smell so strong of weed it would give people a head ack.

    well if we had drug testing for welfare folks, all the money saved on handouts not given to druggies could go towards the testing ;)


    and this is coming from someone that smokes recreationally.

    this.

    unless theres an actual disability or they deserve the help.

    or if they have another child while on welfare, able enough to have sex, able enough to get a job.

    The people who failed the welfare urine test and had to go get a jobbie job. Their taxable income will provide the funds.

    And :werd: to the 6 month limit.

    it all sounds good on paper.

    in the end, it will just lead to more crime/robbery/your civics stolen.


    the answer starts at the abortion level, or tieing the tubes/vacsetimy level

    I thought drugtesting had been largely eliminated from the workplace. IMHO it was a late 90's thing...

    I like the idea of testing would be welfare recipients, yes with all the money saved not paying to support junkies drug tests could instead be payed. It might at first result in a spike in crime rates but over time it would phase out all the unemployed addicts.
    And I smoke weed every damn day, all damn day. I never get pee tested (knock on wood) even when I knock a damn step ladder off 3 levels of scaffold!! Yay for Canada!

    I say that the cost of the drug test come out of their welfare, it can't cost that much for a plastic cup and a drug strip.

    I still think its a good idea. Imagine how many people that are eligible for welfare that would be kicked out. Win/win -- less people on welfare and forcing people to get a real job. :shrug:
