You need to get a life and stop complaining about other people and learn to not be self concerened okay . I have ebt bc im a teen mom of a 7month old so you need to stop saying people on ebt are worthless. You're worthless.:)

I am a cashier at a store. I see people all the time use food stamps to buy Red Bull. These are the same ones that bring in handfuls of change to buy their cigarettes, they will have a few little kids with them and refuse to buy the kids anything to eat or drink. They will also buy a lot of lottety tickets...It burns me up that I am working my a** off, making minimun wage and barely getting by. And to watch the laziest, nastiness humans on earth use a government card to buy energy drinks, the whole system is SO screwed up!!!
Well I dont think u have any room to talk and being a cashier isnt actually working ur ass off! Im not on welfare but I think its funny that u have something to say at all!! Lol!! How bout get off ur lazy ass and get a career! Then say something... Thank u!

First of all why do people even care what other people are buying with foodstamps or anything else!? How about u worry about u and try purchasing something without hawking the person using an ebt card! Kinda scary that u look that to even tell what they r using!! U people r probably the ones stealing someones idenity! So basically mind ur own business! Im not on welfare but if I was I would be looking over my shoulder to see if ur eye balling my ebt card! Lmao

i would pay $1.00 cash for every $2.00 worth of food stamps if someone would sell them, that way you could buy drugs, beer, energy drinks, whatever, with the cash and i can get double the amount of food. everybody wins!

I use food stamps for Red Bull due to migraine headaches. My doctor suggested I take 1200 mg of aspirin and a Red Bull, or half of one, in place of an injection of Imitrex. I understand people out there abuse their stamps for this drink. I, however, would rather follow my doctors advice than inject Imitrex. Since cancer has left me disabled, I don't feel bad about using my card to buy 6 Red Bulls maximum a month! Imitrex knocks me out cold and I am an unproductive piece lump of crap for at least 2 days. At least with the aspirin and Red Bull I can be productive and not lay in bed for two or three days.
The loser that abuse the stamps for this are just that, losers! I see people selling their food stamps for cash all the time here in Milwaukee. Those are the people that should be punished and will ruin this generous help that so many of us really need!

okay so my question is why can i buy RED BULL with my EBT but not other energy drinks such as Rockstar or monster? no one can seem to explain it to me.
Now I don't abuse my food stamp card with energy drinks and candy but if i choose to buy a RED BULL before work it's no one's business but my own.
BUT WHY DOES RED BULL GET APPROVED AND OTHER ENERGY DRINKS DENIED? Nutrition facts? if anyone knows please let me know, thank you.
With EBT, you can purchase energy drinks that have a "Nutritional Facts" Label. You can NOT purchase any with a "Supplemental Facts" Label.

Wtf is wrong with people!? Im from kansas and own a construction company. Biz got slow and no matter how much i didnt want to get them we had to do something. Wife just got laid off from her job too, so she signed us up. Lots of people on food stamps have jobs, and still need them to get by. One day all of you who are talking shit on people who use them may need some assistance, and i guarantee u will not be here apologizing for your previous statements. Ive been on both sides, bitch all u want. Still not gonna change the fact or get u into the pearly gates any faster talkin like that.

Nothing wrong with me, I just like seeing my tax money being wasted on some peoples food stamps. There is BIG difference in needing them to buy your food with than getting them to sellto get money for drugs or buy such crap as energy drinks. Thats what the biggest majority around do with them, wasting my money!

Why do people worry about what people buy with food stamps? We pay taxes there's no other alternative its the law point blank. are some taxes stupid? Absolutely. However there's nothing you really can do about it. I mean you can choose not to pay them but that's on you. It's funny how people just assume the person who is buying the energy supplement is a lazy piece of Shit. Shows how judgemental this shitty society is. Have I bought a red bull with link? Yeah I have. Do you think that's all I use it for? No, feeding the family is priority. This is a fuc*** time we live in. If I am getting help from the government I will make use of it as much as I can if you were being helped your telling me if you wanted an energy supplement you wouldnt buy one once in a while. I think that's a lie

My son now recieves food stamps, he needs them. He also is a migrain headache sufferer. He also said Red bull helps migraines, therefore, if he needs a red bull, so be it.

Now you people need to realize there is a difference between people who abuse the foodstamps and then there are others. Cmon people if you buy like one redbull its not a problem but when you obviously are cheating the system and buying soda and candy and cookies and not buying real food then thats just wrong.
