http://www.nola.com/opinions/index.ssf/2011/03/the_fourt_time_is_no_charm_for.html why is taking a drug test to go to work ok and it's not ok to drug test welfare recipients? I take four hair test a year. Every person in this plant does. Why is it unfair or racist to ask the same of welfare recipients. Republicans have been called racist and other negative names and democrats have fought this and have tried to score political points by voting this down. Kids suffer in the hood and trailer park dumps because their parents spend all their money on drugs. I'm not trying to get down on the occasional pot smoker. Pot should be legal IMO. These people that can't take care of themselves and the taxpayer ( you and me) has to be daddy and take care of their azz then they need to prove they are trying to get off the tit. They can do this by showing they could pass a pre employment drug test if they happen to get that call out the blue for a job. Now mr. Liberal please tell me why you condone drug use by welfare recipients. When you do not support drug testing them this is what you are doing.
