Ok so I was thinking today about legalization of marijuana and drug testing people who recieve government assistance. Here's the deal if pot becomes legal should we still drug test. Most positive drug test are for marijuana if its legal with stipulations like cigarettes or drinking then you can't legally test anyone and hold assistance over their head. My question is If pot becomes legal do you still think we should drug test people before they get assitance?

I think it's a waste of money to drug test recipients, legal or not.

Drug reading for welfare costs the states way more money than it saves them. I don't think it should be done regardless.

I don't think we should drug test PA recipients now. It's a waste of money, that was proven in Fla.

 


Thank God......it's Friday!!!

They shouldn't drug test at all.  Waste of money and a violation of civil rights.

Uh, yeah, actually. It IS a plant. And unlike most other plant based drugs it's not processed, just pick the buds, dry em and smoke em.

Employers pay is they choose to test employees, the taxpayers don't foot the bill like with PA.

FTR, I'm opposed to pre-employment drug testing. What I do in my personal time is my business. Unless I come to work high it's not my employers concern.
