Welfare recipients should buy food and necessities! Not lotto tickets and cigarettes with taxpayers money. If you don't like it get off of welfare!

Just say yes!

Welfare recipients should be allowed to by both lotto tickets and illicit drugs with their welfare salaries and EBT cards.

Prohibiting them from buying drugs would be detrimental to the illegal drug industry and hence to an already sluggish national economy as well.
