Quit attempting to discuss things in which you have no educational means of supporting your statements. Read very carefully. People who work every day qualify for food stamps.Food stamps are based on the number of people in your family, and your income. I have been blessed to never have to sign up for food stamps, and have always been blessed with a good job. Quite frankly, I don't care what they buy with their stamps as it is none of my business. Nor, is it any of your business. Maybe, I should come to your house and tell you what to eat, drink etc. Learn the law, know the facts.

Your location says California...That explains a lot of why you feel this way...It's Godless, bleeding heart liberal people like you that want to strip morals away from society, and thinks a person should be able to do whatever they want without fear of consequence.
I assume you enjoy paying your tax monies to people that don't deserve it. But according to your way of thinking I guess you think everyone deserves it. Fine, you people can pay for it then.
My location says "W. VA. I DON'T LIVE THERE IDIOT. Your IP address has nothing to do with where you live. I work everyday so don't even go there. I would much rather my tax dollars be used for food stamps than to see it go for the white collar crime. You know the drug addicted lawyers, the people who have children by every woman in town and are quite wealthy. You know the one's who sends their wives on trips so they have their girlfriends over. Then, after they have these children, they hide the fact and will not support them. White collar crime such as Wall Street. How much of your tax dollars did that cost. It is amazing how some of you idiots fail to look at the dollars spent on government waste in Washington. Big dinners for lobbyist, travel expenses for the congress and senate, the government pays their salary,pays all their travel, pays the living expenses, food allowance etc. NOW THAT IS WHAT PEEVES ME OFF ABOUT MY TAX DOLLARS.

Check out what happened in Fl when they done all the drug testing. Just about everyone passed it. Cost the state mega bucks for nothing.

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!!!
Maybe you should go apply for food stamps. It is really done of your business what people buy with their stamps, or their money. Who cares! What is the difference in an energy drink, and a pepsi, or water. NO ONE CARES!

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.
Hi there! Red Bull gets approved because it has a nutrition facts label on the back. Other energy drinks have a supplement facts guide on the back and it is therefore like a supplement such as vitamins which a foodstamp card does not pay for vitamins! Your Welcome!!

I had a job for nine years and I recently go fired for the stupidist reason on earth. I made really good money and then all of a sudden there was nothing. I had to apply for food stamps. I have never been on welfare before. Obviously the people that get on the foodstamp program reach the criteria setforth from the state. I always drink red bull and just because I recently aquired a food stamp card does not mean that the only thing I should purchase with my card is water or milk. I like red bull and I will continue to buy it no matter what people theink. I'm not going to go to the store and not get what I like just becuase of what you dumba&! people think! You can get red bull because it has a nutrition facts label on the back. You can not get certain energy drinks because they have a supplemental facts label on the back which is considered a vitam which the food stamp card does not pay for vitamins. So does this mean I cannot buy myself good steaks and just get myself hamburger meat instead or day old bread just because I have foodstamps? Mind your own business and don't worry about what I buy dummy!

I'm on food stamps, and I'm on a submarine in the US Navy defending my country, and I'm planning on buying some energy drinks with my food stamp card for my next deployment because when you work as many hours as I do you need energy! So I have a job, work harder than most, sacrifice a lot of time from my wife and kids, I'm definitely not useless to society, and I'm on food stamps. So all of you out there should stop judging people on food stamps. It doesn't mean they don't have a job or don't work hard. And one more thing. I think its pretty sad that someone that defends our country and sacrifices so much is eligible for food stamps because of how little the government pays us for what we do.

I know that the other day when I went grocery shopping there was this guy and you can tell he was high . All he was yelling about was getting red bull with his food stamp card. Most of the time I try not to judge people because it isn't my place to BUT let me tell you a person like that makes it hard not too. I know that there are some good people that really need food stamps and use them the way they where intended BUT like everything else in life you will always have a few bad apples in the bunch that will make things bad for everyone.

Everyone needs to stop hating on people on food stamps all I know is ive been working since I turned 16 years old graduated from highschool and am currently workin on my bachelors! I'm on unemployment and food stamps right now I'm not a low life or a loser I'm probably better off than you all. Life brings its struggles and if the help is out there then get it! I know I've worked my ass of for and paid my taxes now it's time I get my share back! Now people that live with it more than 2 years and aren't doing shit With their life, they have no excuse. So I dont give a shit when I shop with my foodstmps I'm going to buy whatever the fuck I want just like i did Andersen I had a job and will again once I have a job again. And I have an iPhone with at&t and what! Quit hating cuz you bust ur ass working and can't afford shit, or sucking dick for ur expenses. All I know is good or bad times i am always gonna be doing it and be successful!

Wow people are so judgmental. Excuse people who are down on their luck wanting something for themselves. I hope one day you all get down on your luck and then be judged for it. It was a question not a forum for everyone to tell them that they are lowlives. You all should feel ashamed of yourselves.I've never been on foodstamps but at least I'm not a judmental pr*ck

I don't get all the complaining about food stamps. What's it to you if someone buys pop or energy drinks with it? They get the same amount of money either way, it's none of your business what's on someone's grocery list.

Boy,it sounds pretty easy to qualify for the food-stamp program in pikeville. I was on unemployment getting half my my income and couldn't get any assistance with food. I ate off of $25.00 a week. Wasn't eating healthy at all. On top of that had out of pocket medical expenses to boot! Guess I could of taken a few more people into my home and claimed dependent!
I quess I am quite surprised to see so many even working and getting assistance.

Correct, told the other by somebody that knows, most State troopers get food stamp assistance. Not all but a few of them. I suppose it has to do with big famlies or something. Some live in 2 or 300k homes, but thats another thread altogether.
