Alot of people are saying to be on PA people should have to take a pee test.. low income housing is kind of like it.. so in order to live in low income housing.. should they have to take a pee test for drugs to live there?

Yes. I'd they can afford drugs then they can pay their own bills.

Probably but I don't think any system set up for it will be effective

Yes. I think the adults in low income families (including our own) should have to take drug tests to qualify for services.

 I can see how people, hypothetically and on paper think this is a good idea. It is not. Not because I want PA users buying drugs, but because it will cost a lot more money than it will save. Florida is proving that for us.

I actually heard they do that in some states.

well, i live in low income housing.. and there's a LOT of people here who buy drugs.. i don't get it.. if you can't afford regular rent for other places, have to be on fs and other help... then why are you buying drugs?

 Well, sure but I think that way not because I am being judgemental ( I lived in subsidized housing myself at one point) but because we all know there really are way too many freeloaders out there, and I think this would actually really help the people who ARE trying to help themselves.
