you can be a functioning person and be on heavy drugs. but i agree. if you're going on welfare no drugs or alcohol for you. people with jobs, that do them well? leave them alone, as long as they're not endangering anyone or ******* up. let them have their fun.

Do that and drugs will become faster than you can say, "Boy, I sure hope drugs don't become legal."

Become legal. I wasn't trying to say that drugs would grow legs and run.

That's not an invasion of privacy ******** .

Don't want the government knowing whether you do drugs or not? Don't be on welfare, no one is making you do it.

If you've opted to have the government pay for your existence, then you're goddamned obligated to follow their rules. Don't like it then just opt out.

Next you're going to bitch about how you have to pay to receive services, and chew to eat. Why shouldn't you get the reward without having to sacrifice?

Except for the fact that the majority of people on welfare aren't addcicted to drugs. The places that have run drug testing on welfare recipient have spent more money on testing than actually catching any drug users. If you don't believe me feel free to look at the information here: www.salon.com/2013/08/29/gop%E2%80%99s_inane_money_eating_sham_drug_tests_for_welfare_a_huge_failure/ or look some up on your own.

The welfare drug test thing just pisses away millions. It costs less just to let a few druggies have a free ride. The whole thing comes from the ridiculous stereotype that all welfare recipients are lazy and degenerate (just like all rich people are corrupt and had trust funds, right?), and no, nobody cares about that one sheneequa that lives down the block, most states have kid caps and the average number of kids in a welfare family is less than three.

And at the same time, drug testing politicians is kind of pointless. They don't get elected for being sterling citizens, they get elected for having the completely fabricated image of a sterling citizen and immediately pandering to emotional ******** . Everyone knows they get high on taxpayer money, testing them for it will convince few.

The main issue I have with it is the massive cost of testing all that piss.

Drug testing welfare recipients is costly with no real gain. In states that have enacted drug screening for welfare recipients there is huge cost to enforce the screening and very few failed tests. For example
Florida: people screened-4086, failed-108, net loss to state-$45780
Oklahoma: people screened-1890, failed-83, net loss to state-$82700 in 7 months
Utah: people screened-466, failed 12, net loss to state-$25000
And after 3 years in Arizona: people screened-87000, failed 1, net loss to state-$200000000.
All these rates are well below the national addiction rate of around 8% Meaning that welfare recipients have are, statistically speaking less likely to be addicts then everyone else. Many of these fails are for marijuana which is not addictive, because THC is hydrophobic and thus stored in fats it remains in the system much longer. It is also worth noting that these recipients are not always providing for themselves, but by denying benefits states remove their dependents access to food. Meaning children going hungry because a parent smoked one joint up to 6 weeks prior. It is a stupid, costly law whose only effect is ******** on the already downtrodden.

So do your research before spouting your mindless idiocy.

meh what would be the point of that? We're literally paying money to the people on welfare and we have no choice in the matter, the politicians are elected to office by us. Of course Im going to be more concerned with the people Im paying money for who I dont know, rather than the person I voted for.

I have no Issue with people stealing Content from reddit

But the community here on funnyjunk shouldn't hate 9gag so much for stealing content from other sites, when funnyjunk is doing exactly the same thing, and then hate on people when they are pointing it out.

Actually the amount of money spent to test welfare recipients, is more money than it actually saves from drug users on welfare.

Not necessarily. In Ohio it cost roughly $30,000 to pay for all the drug tests. Yes, only like a dozen people were found to be on drugs, and yes the amount of money that saved was nothing compared to what they spent, but if you sad excuses for 'intelligent beings' would do further research than just whatever popped up on FJ or FB you would know that the Ohio state government paid out $300,000 less in welfare than the previous year. It is because hundreds of people who knew they would not pass the drug test did not even bother to sign up for welfare, which in the long run saved the state a good chunk of cash.

The more you know....

i had to write a paper on this one.
they instated this policy in florida and when the numbers came in, it was hardly worth the time effort and cost to catch a small percentage. the money we assume we won't lose on those we catch doing drugs while receiving welfare was/would be lost with all the cups, processing, and labor etc. etc. associated with this law.

but the politicians...that'd be nice.

Yeah I'd love to see them do that in Cleveland. Not even all of Ohio, just Cleveland. Hell, Cuyahoga county to be general.
#5 - jaked (11/13/2013) [+] (3 replies)
Ideologically I completely agree, however the reality is that very few people on welfare are doing drugs, simply because welfare doesn't provide enough money to support a drug addiction. Florida briefly implemented drug tests for welfare recipients, but stopped it almost immediately because it ended up costing substantially more than it saved.
