I think government assistance is getting extremely out of hand. It's too lenient and it's making all of us go broke. I'm sure a good amount of people on welfare and food stamps (or whatever they call them) are on drugs. And I don't want my taxes to go up because some addict can't get help and get a job.

Frankly all people are created equal and drugs or not they deserve food. and then maybe in the future they will decide to quit because of money.

I would love to see the opinion of what happens state by state. Washington has legalized it state wide, but legally it's still a federal crime. Food stamps and such are federal benefits, so would the state employees that review the paperwork have to take this into consideration. I honestly would like a chance to debate this one, but since this isn't an option I'm hoping one of you could include this in yours. Good luck, I look forward to future arguments.

Well, I would accept, but with a character limit of 750 per round, I can't say that we would get much of a discussion here. Too bad, been trying to have this debate several times before.
