So now losing a job through no fault of one's own can get workers treated like criminals? Sounds like typical rethug political posturing. Workers contribute to unemployment insurance so its not like they are applying for welfare. Soon we will all be living in a urineocracy! Whatever happened to the fourth amendment and the right to privacy?

Whatever happened to not taking drugs so you don't have to worry about it? It is the employer that pays this tax, not the worker. So if you want free money, you gotta play by their rules. Otherwise, save some money for hard times so you don't need a government handout.

If you are willing to surrender your rights, fine, but don't surrender mine and others who still believe in the bill or rights and the right to privacy! What people do in their own homes, on their own time is none of the government's business, not your business and not mine.

There should be mandatory drug testing for anyone wanting any government benefits. Test Positive for illeagal drug use NO JAIL time, just no benefits.

No welfare, no school loans, grants, no un-employment, no tax deductions, no tax refunds, no gun permits, no drivers license. The person applying for the benefits would have to pay the cost of the drug test not the tax payers.

Submitting to the drug test for benefits is no different to drug testing for pre-employment , joining the service, no different than proving finacial eligibility for student loans, grants or welfare.

Think of all the federal and state money that could be saved. If a pesron tested positive for drug use and had to surrender his tax re-fund that money could go the cost of drug enforcement, not being able to use tax deductions would would increase a drug users tax liability again more revenue towards drug enforcement. Testng prior to Drivers License renewals keeping drug users from behind the wheel. Testing prior to issuing gun permits keeps guns away from Drug users.

Ohh and no pee tests... it has be be a hair test.

Again The cost of the test is up to the individual to pay for not the government or other tax payers.

Time to get serious about POT / Meth heads and all other illegal drug users

I think dare got his/her ideas from either Hitler or Stalin! Maybe you want to live in a police state with no privacy rights but most normal people don't! Go ahead and surrender your rights if you want but leave mine alone and by the way I don't use drugs I just respect the bill of rights unlike you.

Those benefits and programs are not constitutional rights, for instance driving is a privledge. So your HITLER and STALIN theory doesn't hold up.
It is real simple you don't want to provide a Drug test then do not apply for benefits, issue solved.
