Since you said ALL people who recieve a check from the government this would have to include: All service personel, veterans and spouses who get pensions, our legislators, military retirees, all people getting Social security, disability(SSI) and children of parents who have died. Now who do you think will pay for this?

I didn't insist the Government be drug tested when I paid them all that tax money as I worked my nearly 40 years including 8 years in the Army. They shouldn't expect to drug test me now.

When you only test welfare recipients seems to be unfair. That will only hurt the children. If we are going to test why not test everyone who gets a check? including social security and disability recipients.

I am in the military and get drug tested almost monthly. If I fail, no more check from them.

So I hear you. Then why draw the line at only those who receive "free money". Shouldn't the people working for the Government also be tested. Lets test all government employees. Only the defenseless poor seem to be the target here.

The bottom line, don't do the drugs and you have no worry. It's that easy. If the parents are doing the drugs, the kids are suffering now.

You get drug tested by the company not the government and you probably agreed to the testing when you got hired plus its for your safety would you want someone messed up on drugs operating heavy machinery right next to you?

And if your not doing drugs why are you whining about being drug tested its just a little pee test. Florida tried this and guess what they found not enough people were doing drugs to keep wasting money on drug test so fail on the welfare/drug myth.

I agree with that.
Some one said test Social Security. Social Security is not an entitlement program. Each person and their employer pays into it. The government keeps raping the social Security funds.
Yes, test everyone who gets a welfare check. I am tired of alcoholics getting a check and sitting across the street from me using the money to still drink and not using it for their children.

You of all people touching patients should be tested and also tested for AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Yes I believe anybody receiving a check should get tested. But I also think they need to start testing anybody who works for the city, county, state, or government.

So what happens when the parent fails their drug test? What about the children? The children didn't ask to be born into their parenst stupidity, many go hungry as it is. I would like to see welfare recipients drug tested but there needs to be something in place to make sure the children have food in their bellies.

You do not HAVE to be drug tested . You ACCEPT the testing . It is a unreasonable intrusion upon your person . Fight back .

Actually the government is sponsoring drug tests . The government knows it is against the constitution to test you but there is nothing to protect you from corporate violations of your constitutional Rights not Privileges .It is NOT a safety issue . Fight back .

It is NOT "just " a pee test . It is a Violation of your Constitutional Rights . With a less than 100 IQ , I can understand your unintelligent response .

So. Do you support the destruction of the constitution ?'cause that is EXACTLY what you purport to . Maybe You want totalitarianism and a Supreme Dictatorship . We all have the Right to pursue happiness . If doing a legal drug gets you off , fine . ONLY when you cross the line and interfere with MY space does it present a problem . Millions of drug users have harmed no one with their activity . As long as they do not steal or harm others , I don't have a problem with ANY drug . Remember LSD was created and released to the public by the government . We do not need more laws that destroy our constitutional rights .
