I am on the fence about this one. I do agree that if someone has money to buy drugs then they have no business getting food stamps/government assistance etc etc. That being said how cost effective is it going to be to drug test all these people. We will be spending MORE money as far as that goes and as always people will figure out a way to skirt the drug test.
I think it's a good idea, but I'm not sure where the money to start drug testing everyone is going to come from. Do you think those applying for assistance should have to pay for the drug test? Do you think the government should pay for it instead?
I completely agree with this! In my opinion, if the recipients have nothing to hide, then they will have absolutely no problem taking a drug test.
