WELFARE: Require a drug test, Idaho

Print Article

Thank you Florida, Kentucky, and Missouri, which are the first states that will require drug testing when applying for welfare. Some people are crying that this is unconstitutional. How is this unconstitutional? Itís OK to drug test people who work for their money, but not those who donít?

If you can afford to buy drugs and extra illegal things then you should be able to afford to buy your own groceries. We need to push this idea in Idaho.
