That is exactly what I said!! I don't care what anybody says, there shouldn't be an argument over that. There should not be a reason why they shouldn't be drug tested. It would be a great way to weed out the people abusing the system. It would be a brilliant idea. You want to know why it won't happen? Because the people that would pass that law would also have to be drug tested, since they are also being payed by the government. It's one of those, "what's good for the pot, should be good for the kettle" situations. The kettle doesn't want to give up their drugs, so that is why it won't happen.
On the other hand it gives government the power to dictate what people do
with their private serves which is a can of worms. It is easy to see that principle
be spread to many other things.
I believe in welfare, don't agree with abuse, but I also think the government
is out of control too often.
