Do you think that drug tests should be mandatory for people that receive welfare?
What a stupid idiotic idea. Is this question based on the red neck fascist assertion that people in need of welfare are drug addicts? Only in the land of the free . . and only in the home of the brave.
No. Just because someone receives welfare does not mean they are drug abusers. If someone applies for welfare, which is a government assistance program, and has to be drug tested, then maybe anyone who applies for any government assistance, student loans, for example, or federally subsidized home loans, or even small business loans, should all be drug tested, too. Simple prejudice against someone who needs welfare is no reason to require drug testing.
No...I don't think so..! the drug tests should not be mandatory for people that receive welfare..
