Soooo, I realize I may be starting a flame war here, but everybody on this forum seems pretty well behaved. Are you in favor of forcing people who want public assistance to pass a drug test? Personally, I'm not. As much as it might feel righteous or whatever to say, "Yeah! Make sure people aren't spending tax money on drugs!" It actually costs WAY more tax money to test everybody. And guess what? Only about 1% of people on welfare do drugs. So it's practically for nothing. Additionally, drug testing doesn't catch the alcoholics spending their food stamps on beer. And making it harder for people like single mothers and their children to get desperately needed assistance is just not worth a sense of justice.
