As well as all people holding any type of political or public office.
Or even Judges, who send people to prison for drugs, many of whom are alcoholics and drug users themselves.

I get drug tested. My taxes go towards those receiving these benifits. They should be drug tested as well. End of discussion.
Sure...because "I" have to deal with getting drug tested then everyone else should have to also. This is like saying because "I" got cancer you should have it too.

Good idea. Include alcohol in the mix, and corporate welfare recipients.
Agree. All people that drink and smoke plants on the weekend should lose their jobs and benefits. This would make things fair. I would love to see hear the stories of all the responsible hard working people that lost their jobs and benefits because they had a few beers watching the game at sports bar on saturday night....but everyday many of thos same people stand up fordrug testing and destroying the lives of people that are just like them, all because the inhaled their "drug".

Until marijuana is removed from all drug testing procedures, or any simple science is conducted to develop a test that determines if you are under the influence at the time of the test, then drug testing is simply a form of lifestyle profiling. Why would anyone condone or stand behind a policy that destroys the lives of others just because they enjoy a different libation then you? It is like saying you do not deserve to make a living because you like scotch and I like bourbon.
