I just saw the following status update on one of my friends’ Faceook page:
Thank you Florida, Kentucky, and Missouri, which are the first states that will require drug testing when applying for welfare. Some people are crying and calling this unconstitutional. How is this unconstitutional? It’s OK to drug test people who work for their money, but not for those who don’t?
This makes me think of the ban on using food stamps to buy soda, which I wrote about here.
What do you think? Do you think random drug testing will actually curb drug use? And do you think this policy is meant to demean welfare users, like they say here?
