Yep. We random test weekly. Came up my turn twice past month. I also have a gov job. The Government tests me or I loose my ability to work for my money. They can't be tested for getting free money? Ridiculous.

I agree some people do need assistance to live and I have no problem with this. My problem is that I had a fried that worked for years to support his family then developed heart problems,and couldn't work did he get assistance from our state or fed. government? HELL NO, and why, because he had worked. Also for years I would help disadvantaged children buying them shess, clothes etc, only to find that within a week their low life mom would sell the stuff to buy drugs or alcohol. If have to work and pay to keep up some of these sorry low life, child abusing druggies and be drug tested because I do work then they need to drug test to get money I work for to keep them up...

If you would rather have drugs than feed your children then kids should be taken away.
