  • yes i do & don't think the state should have to pay for the drug test either, I see so many people abuse the system & use their benefits to help buy their drugs all the while ,thier kids go hungry and bills don't get paid, it makes me sick.

  • yes, but where's the money to pay for the drug tests going to come from? If the people on welfare could afford to shell out that kind of money all the time, then they wouldn't be on welfare, so the other option is taxpayer dollars, which would add to the cost of the welfare program by millions

  • no, i think they should be forced to learn a trade & get a job.

  • No. I think that they legally wouldnt be able to do that however, I do think they should do job training (and most states do it now) and when they do a job placement a urine test should be done. If they fail the urine test because of drug use then I think the state should no longer give them state aid.

  • you can have a drug tests done for 20 bucks at the hospital and most of them have more money than I do. They drive brand new cars and have 5 or 6 kids, If they can't pay the measly 20 dollars when signing their app or when they re-do it however months it is, oh well get an job.........................In order to qualify you must pay for drug tests first or you do not get welfare, bet more would work
