Do you think welfare recipients should have to pass a drug test to receive their tax-payer supported welfare check?

I work in an Industry that requires passing a drug test on a random basis and at the time of being hired. It's only fair they pass a drug test to receive a welfare check , if I got to pass one to give it to them.

    Any person on this poll that does not support this is either NOT paying into the system OR is a doper living off the system.
    Common sense dictates if your a taxpayer paying for this with your hard earned money you simply cant have a problem with wanting to see its not misused or abused and those that benifit are held accountable.
    It really is that simple and clear.

    HMM,, seems you are in need of a reading leason..

    my post states " ... qualified to comment on my education or expierence ..."
    you do not have a clue of my education or expierence , no matter what you have done in the past, where ever you got a diploma , what ever you dream of at night, you do not have any knowledge of me and my expierence, and it is outrageous for you to attempt to spin your tale as if you do....

    so, go back and read , re read , my post ... you do not have any idea of my life....

    And in the long run? It'll just push black market prices up, so that Pot growers make even more money. Illegal growers love this, they live for tougher laws to charge more.
    Don't people feel it's time for a change? Even if you dislike Marijuana, it doesn't take a genus to figure out the laws are not working.

    I am in welfare and every time I go to the welfare place there is always some person that looks like he/she not clearly there... to me welfare allowed me to go to school and pay for things that I need .. I do not want that money be wasted on drugs....I do not mind getting tested ...

    I certainly do because it is an insult to america that our tax money is intended to help these people but ends up supporting their drug habit. If a person can't pay for their own habits nobody else especially the american tax payer should.

    Sure do, unless it is a prescription from a licensed doctor. No other exceptions.
    Wish they could test for alcohol amounts, too.

    Hell yeah. I have to pass one to earn the money they steal from my paycheck so why not?

    While we are at it I'd say their dozen children should have to maintain a 3.5 GPA with no more than 2 absences a year in school in order to maintain their income.
  • Dion Pr... Edbert 2012/06/12 13:32:30

    thats the dumbest thing i heard all day. keep the children out of it. yeah people shouldnt use public funds on drugs (or their own funds) but to ask that their kids have a 3.5 GPA is rediculous.
  • Edbert Dion Pr... 2013/09/17 21:31:56

    Well since mommy and daddy have nothing to do but tutor the kids they should do well in school and hopefully not end up as mooches like the parents.

    Listen Up People, Because Of How Many People Voted Yes On This One.

    I paid in for many years, I'll never see half the money I paid in.

    It's my damn business what I spend it for.

    I don't spend welfare money on pot though. But if we are gonna do this, then perhaps I shouldn't be allowed to buy just a little booze either. We're talking only 205$ per month here in PA.

    That's all the more it is unless you have children, and then they usually just give you other help, and more food stamps.

    I worked for my little bit, how about half of you who voted (yes)?

    hmmm,, interesting ,,
    and to answer your question , I voted YES , and I pay into the system , have paid into the system for 50 years now,, and I do not receive one dollar, not one penny back, so what the heck does your rant want to make a point of ???

    get $$ for food, do not spend any $$ on drugs.. kinda simple concept,, if you got $$ for drugs you do not need my $$ for food....

    Absolutely.

    I don't want my money going to pay for their recreational drugs.

    If they can afford drugs they don't need assistance from the taxpaying working man.

    They should not have drugs around children.

    I have to pass a urine test when I apply for a job. So this seems fair to me. Equality for all ;-)

    This isn't about equality, this is about people like you feeling that since you are treated unfairly, then -everyone- should be treated unfairly. And you erroneously call it "equality." This selfish attitude is played out on this forum over and over with the prevalent attitude, "I have to do it for my job, so you should, too."

    No, -you- don't foot the bill, we ALL foot the bill, therefore we all have a say in how it's meted out. The masses (not the minority) make the laws for the majority.
