Huh? Is that the drugs talking. Who said anything about jail?<quoted text>
YEs, test them and if they fail send them jail, pay an attorney to represent them and then send them off to jail for a longer time. That is much cheaper than letting them stay home and watch the kids.
They don't receive benefits until they get clean... the only benefit we should pay for.
True. So why would we want to reward them to have more children?Then you can put the kids in a foster home and pay them to keep the kids.[/UOTE]
Is there a little voice in your head telling you these things, because it sure wasn't me?
[QUOTE who="okb2"]Kids from a single parent home have a much greater chance of dropping out of school and going on welfare or jail themselves. Locking Mom up makes jail routine and a normal part of life. It also greatly increases their already poor chances of being self-sufficient.
Mom could always conider getting a job. now, that's radical thinking, but it's a thought.Since Mom can no longer get support her kids go in the system.
Then there's no problem... in Florida.Generations later someone wants to drug test again.
Yes, they do cost us money in many ways.
but Florida found that despite Republican rhetoric, there just were not that many on drugs.
I'm so happy for Florida.The added burden on the state just was not worth cost. I suggest you talk to Texas about it. Tell them you are willing to foot the bill.
