Critics question if the children of people testing positive for drugs would be harmed by losing benefits.

Not nearly as much as they're already being harmed by their druggy parents who care more about killing their brain then actually trying to provide for their children.

Ya know . . . I have a feeling that welfare recipients have an unfair advantage when it comes to any kind of test on drugs . . . .

When Engler tried to institute drug testing for welfare reicipients in Michigan, the courts ruled against his program. He found ways around the rulings, once the welfare program got replaced with a job hunting program-most prospective employers did require drug tests, so the recipients got tested that way, and if positive, were given so much time to get treatment or get cut off from all assistance and have CPS notified. This is pretty effective with potheads, who, at the bottom level, generally don't want to lose their kids over their habits.


The hard-core drug users usually end up finding a way to get SSI and thus be exempt from the drug-testing. The really ironic cases are the ones who get SSI for conditions caused by a lifetime of shooting smack or smoking crack.

I was on the floor of the Missouri House when they were debating this bill last week. It was very testy!

I'm sure it was. I'm sure that there were people claiming that drug testing would violate the rights of those on welfare. Welp my answer to that is when you belly up to the public trough, the public has a right to know that they're not supporting your drug habit.
