What is wrong with this? It is time the government is accountable to the taxpayers. Drug test these people and stop this scam of EBT Cards to lazy no good frauds that spend money on alcohol cigarettes and strip clubs. They are the smart ones and the working people are the idiots. Demand accountablility from the welfare system.

I am opposed to drug testing. It is a violation of privacy and the tests are inaccurate. For example there is no way of telling exactly how much of a particular drug is in your system at the time of the test. Imagine you and the wife are on vacation, decide to smoke a joint to relax and have some really nice lovemaking. Two days later you are at work and drug tested. Pot generally stays in the system for 72 hours. Technically you are not under the influence at the time of the test but will be fired. As for the welfare cards being used in exchange for this or that, it is nothing new. I don't have a remedy for this, but drug testing is not the answer.

If you are on welfare you shouldn't be taking a vacation now should you? Your life is a permanent vacation.

The reason you would be fired for pot is because it is illegal.

Yep.. When given the choice of smoking pot or making a living one needs to get his priorities in order. I hate that pot is illegal , but that doesn't change the reality of it. I'd hate to think that our nurse friend would pick getting high over having a career, she has her priorities strait. It seems totally fair to me that these welfare people will have to address their priorities also. Maybe they'll be encouraged to work if physically possible to support their habit instead of expecting us to do so.
