Welfare are the ones who are about to start being drug tested, people on disability have nothing to do with it.

I think every body getting government assistence, ie. Welfare, Food stamps, or disability, should be drug tested. There are too many lazy people in this world today that use the government as a crutch. I know there are people out there who actually really need it. But i think that drug testing every one getting assistence will weed out the obes who dont. It will by no means fix the system, but it would be a good step in that direction!

I think drug testing people is a good idea BUT to make it even better one is to not let the applicants / receivers know when they are going to be tested.

Random drug testing would definately be better than a scheduled monthly testing. Go knock on their doors an say pee in this cup or take their blood or hair...definately be an increase of jobs for social workers!

Like they can't take someone elses pee. They can't search you either, and they can't film you. Drug testing is a gigantic waste of taxpayer dollars. And yes I do have a job, a well paying job that preforms random drug tests. Do they drug test me, no, becasue I am a worker, and I also know my rights!
I know drug testing is a sham. In Indiana right now the supreme court is hearing cases of over 5,000 prision inmates who were put in jail over faulty drug tests. The state lab failed its quality control checks numerous times, took a whistle blower to get them to admit they were putting people in prison without reason (These people in Indiana were on parole and were required to take testing).
Florida supreme court overturned their governers order to drug test all state employees. Said it violated the employees rights.
You know what should be allowed. To check your computer to see if your a pedophile. But we don't do that, or have mandatory sentences for those people who are pedophile. But if you get caught with crack mandatory sentence, up the creek to be butfucked, but if you butfuck a kid. The judge and jury get to decide that sentence.
Drug testing is a violation of these disabled peoples rights, and it won't be long until someone takes this to court and is abolished.
Prohibition never works.
Sorry drug testers, it doesn't work.
right

Hair tests eliminate the problems with drug testing and doesn't involve ur privates and piss. Test everybody that gets government assistance and pay checks. Lazy ass bums.

I agree with this 100%. You can blame people for drug use, but we let rapist and murders slip by our hands like its nothing. How about we focus more on these missing children.

I recieve Social Security Disability. I am NOT on drugs nor have I ever abused drugs. I started in the workforce when I was 17 and worked 40+ hrs a week for many years. I was raised with a work ethic that I am very proud of. I was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago and I fought for my life so that my children would not be raised without a mother. I paid into the social security system and I don't feel that I am recieving a handout. If the government wants to drug test me that is ok with me. I do think that those of you that are able to get out of bed everyday and go to work, be thankful you can do just that. Those of us who can't didn't choose for this to be our lives. No one chooses to be unhealthy. I would be careful not to judge others. You may find yourself needing the assistance of the Social Security Benefits that YOU have paid into.

I think everyone in this country should be subject to random drug test. You have the right to know if the person you are working with or driving alongside down the road is on drugs. Don't just pick people who receive government assistance to check. Lets be fair and check everyone. This way a lot of people using drugs and test positive may lose their job and a person that is clean might be able to get the job the user lost. My meds are dr prescribed. Those who take drugs not prescribed should lose their jobs just the same as the ones receiving government assistance should lose their benefits. Wake up let's be fair for all.
