People on welfare checks should be drug tested
People on welfare checks should not be drug tested
They shouldn't be spending the money on drugs, so this would be a fair way of ensuring that the system is abused a little less
Not because drugs or alcohol are immoral, rather to ensure that people recieving welfare are using it for more pragmatic uses, such as food or housing
Testing for drugs before receiving welfare will keep individuals from spending the tax payer's money on drugs, and can help them to get rehab.
If people are just going to take our tax dollars and buy drugs with it, then they are sucking off the system and America doesn't deserve something like that. I believe that drug testing will enforce this
Because people on welfare are accepting "other peoples money" to live and have no right squandering any or that money on drugs, gambling, strip clubs or alcohol. Many of these kind of venues accept EBT cards. SICK! If you ask for hand outs you should be prepared to give up your rights to freedom. You should be treated like little children living at home under Mommy and Daddy's rules. Tough s**t. Welfare allows way too many luxuries beyond the necessities of living. It was not meant to make people so comfortable. Comfortable people on welfare and various other handouts lack motivation to work for anything better. We have a generation of lazy apathetic people who breed unrestricted then think they are not in the right to submit to a drug test? We cannot sustain generation after generation of degenerates. Getting them off drugs and whatever other vices they have will only serve to make life a little less comfortable and might spur them to do something good with their lives. Maybe not. Either way welfare should END!
costs more than it saves; full stop.
NO, for one that makes a faction of people more discriminated against. If a person is drug tested at work it is for insurance purposes...if you are injured and high, well then financial responsibility could be excused from the company. On the other hand, and although this is the one handout I think SHOULD BE SCRUTINIZED, you don't know how the drugs were obtained. And frankly most people drink like a fish, so there are tons of functioning addicts around...................
