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 fucking 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 shithead.

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 bullshit. 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.

I guess overall, my view on this is that we are still free to fuck up and be as fucked up as we want to be while we fuck up.
Mandatory drug testing for things like government assistance would probably just lead to a lot of people being denied the help cuz they smoked a joint that month.
And drug testing politicians? I guess it depends on their viewpoint.. If they're anti-whatever drug, could ask them to prove they're clean..

I don't like it because it implies drug users don't deserve help. They're people, too. Addiction is a disease. I just find it appalling how we, as a society, treat mental illness and poverty. We act like it's a choice people make that turns them into scum.
User avatar #123 to #120 - sparkyoneonetwo (11/14/2013) [-]
well if you do drug test them and they fail the test that is a great opportunity to try and help them find help to kick the addictions.

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.

Let's go ahead and talk about drug testing wellfare and unemployment being drug tested... As much as I'd like to see this happen, it's far more expensive than it's worth. What really needs to happen is there needs to be more of an incentive for wellfare recipients to get jobs. Because of the stagnate economy (US) it's almost becoming more profitable to get onto wellfare or unemployment. If the amount of money and time was reduced than I guarantee people would stop reaping the benefits as much and go out and get a job even if it's low income.

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.
