If some one wants to do drugs they are gonna do them, no sort of test is going to stop that, and yes they will still get benefits.
most everything else they test for leaves the system relatively quick and so what will happen is you will see these people being tested for drugs
taking cleansers and taking a break from there habit a couple days before the test.
and then another 28 days a month be back on one. Sure you will catch a couple, and that will open up space and money for someone that is good at
cheating the system.
blood and hair tests are thrown out the window, One, they cost way to much. Two if hair tests are done, how many will shave there entire body before
the test and say its for some religious reason, or medical reason? I can see someone saying ..."there was a lice infestation at my house so to take
preemptive measures I shaved my body and hair...." is it illegal to shave your body? not were im from.
Blood test? its a possibly, if you want to spend even more tax dollars than you are now and again it takes a couple days to clean up.
now the real issue, who has the right to tell us what we can and can not do? Who has the right to take our urine, our blood , our hair without our
consent. Mandatory drug tests are a complete invasion of privacy.
In an ever changing world were our purchases are tracked, our emails read, our posts filed away, our searches documented, our faces on camera
everywhere, our finger prints filed, our gps phones going everywhere we go , our entertainment consoles watching and listening to us in our homes, I
value the little privacy we have left.
why is cool for people to be loaded up with pain killers, muscle relaxers, amphetamines, sleeping pills, and magic pills that make you happy but if
you go out get things that have the same effect as the aforementioned prescription drugs all the sudden its not ok?
it boils down that drug tests are just another form of control the the leaders of society are forcing upon us. Why there doing it, to what end, is
another thread altogether
Thats another thing, the people writing these laws and forcing these tests should have to take the same tests, why are peasants only subject to
testing? I bet the next time congress, or parliament got together for a session and they were all drug tested on the spot, many would have to find
In conclusion if people on welfare we tested to get money, it wouldn't change anything. So there is no point, and the whole drug testing thing is a
farce anyway so the less drug tests the better.
