I'm not putting thoughts in anyone's heads.
All I'm saying is that to properly counter argue those graphs requires some evidence to do so. Otherwise those graphs that are put up by Krazyshot must be correct.
Straight from the link he pulled the graphs from "In 2014, 446 of the state’s 38,970 applicants were tested. Just 48 tested positive." That was for the first graph. So those large bars on the left of each graph are not the number of people tested. Did you read the source or just take the graphs at face value?
The main point is clear, though. Lots of money was thrown away on the testing and almost nothing was found.

I meant the numbers don't work for the taxpayer. These types of programs using the data already collected show they cost the taxpayers millions of dollars and they have virtually no return. If you're spending $29 million per state that's 1.5 billion per year wasted.
