let me pose a question to you. If I have to be drug tested to be able to work at my job so my taxes can pay for your food-stamps , why shouldn't you have be drug tested to be able to receive them?:)

yea..... They should. I work at a place where I see this all the time. It makes me angry. These ppl receive more in food stamps in a month.... Than I receive in a paycheck. It's ridiculous. As a student in college I would be ashamed to live and be proud of getting help from the government. They should drug test. More than half of Alice is on food stamps!!! Get off your lazy ass and get a job or get an education. Most of these ppl can work they just want everything fed to them. We have to work to support ourselves why shouldn't they??? Dumb druggies
I AGREE 100%

I also agree, but you need to be know that some people on assistance do work, just don't make enough &not ALL are druggies. So yes I agree with testing but don't forget not everyone on assistance are bad, so please stop trying to downgrade all people!

Why drug test they will clean up for the test n go back just like everything else. Let's talk about the people committing fraud with the L/V , coach purses dress like a million dollars enjoying child support hubby pay checks n the food stamps too listen there is nothing wrong with helping out the people who really need it stop bullying them start counting your lucky stars u can afford food this is not a laughing matter many people can't afford to buy food n pay bills n they do work stop dogging u would be very surprised to know the people who don't need it n get them stop talking like u r the ly one that pays

I completely agree. If u have to pass a test to work you should do the same for assistance. As long as the proper rules are followed its all good. The only people who may care, could be the ones who have something to hide. I also think that it should be done randomly, someone selected by a computer program. None of the employees should know until it pops up on the computer screen.

I agree with the rationale I am doubtful it would ever work ..... I do not do drugs or receive food stamps but I don't want innocent chdren to pay the ultimate price for their irresponsible parents

Wow this is the reason so many people are angry at the food stamp receipents food stamps are meant to keep food on the table everyday for children not for having BBQ cook outs people get upset because of the abuse that obviously people like u do I believe the government should start some type of program where no one can sell them n assure the kids are getting fed shame on u for bragging on what belongs to ur children do not take advantage of people who work hard n do not have this privilege

Something to think about... If we drug test can you imagine how many who will not qualify for benefits then this will make them commit burglary and crimes to meet their "needs" when on drugs that's your priority and will do anything for them we wish they will seek jobs but many won't.. We will be forced to protect our families and board our homes with so many looting and violence out of desperation
