    Some people might look @ drug testing in a negative way but this bill being passed can help some people. Just maybe if they can get clean they can get a job and keep it to support their own families.

      The majority of people on welfare have jobs already but they don’t pay enough to support themselves. Assuming everyone that’s on welfare is in drugs is ignorant. This is going to cost too much money and be a waste. Other states have already done this and it failed miserably.

    I think this maybe a way to help people stop using the system to support their drug habits. Now they maybe able to gain employment and keep it to support their own families.

    If people who work are subject to random drug testing in order to keep their job and make the money needed to provide for their families, then people who receive public assistance should be required to do the same,

    • Trey says:

      You aren’t required to take a drug test to keep your job, you are required to take a drug test so that the company can avoid legal liability if you hurt somebody while on drugs.

      • Ed says:

        How do you figure you are not required to take a drug test to keep your job, try refusing to take it and see what happens. How stupid can you be?

      • Ed says:

        I totally agree, they need to follow the same guidelines….after all they are no better than the rest of us.
