  • Yep! It would make it a lot easier for people like ME, who don't abuse the system. I've never done drugs and I have no desire to ever do them.

  • Eh, it doesn't really matter to me. I'm not all that concerned with what other people do with their lives, even if I am technically paying for it.

  • Yes, I do believe random drug tests should be enforced, but I'm concerned for the children of the parent who fails the drug test and loses the welfare benefits.
    There has to be a back-up system in place so the innocent children don't suffer.

  • YES! I know too many drugys on welfare and I can;t even get food stamps to help out. The sytem is messed up! I would do monthly drug testing if only I could get a LITTE help to make life a bit better for us.

  • Never heard of that, but I love the idea.

    Answer by Dorris1203 at 12:35 PM on Jun. 2, 2009

  • If this were feasible I would agree. Back in the 80's I was on medicare for awhile. Even then I would have agreed with this policy. If you receive welfare and have nothing to hide I don't see where you would have a problem with this idea. I also think at least half of the welfare recipients would be removed due to all the pot smoking going on. Instead of self righteous people telling food stamp recipients what to buy I think we should be demanding drug testing instead.
