    Because that is exactly the same thing.

    Yeah, but there's actually a return on the money spent on those shipping lanes. How much return is there on welfare drawing crack heads??

    We never said zero government intrusion, otherwise we would be a tribal nation. This is minimal intrusion. I suppose driver license renewals are an intrusion as well.

    I support drug legalization for practical reasons, however druggies don't have to recieve welfare.

    The government is limited in the manners in which it can piss away my tax dollars, too. I'm going to vote for the folks who wish to bridle that government waste. This bill is a step in the right direction. Just end all entitlements and there won't be any problems with violating one's liberties.

    I don't recall the welfare class having to pay back their welfare money, either. Should that be the new direction of welfare in this country? Make welfare payments an actual loan that has to be paid back? I'm cool with that.

    I would like to think that this shoul dbe common-sense policy nationwide for anyone on any government assistance, to include those getting a government paycheck of any sort.

    Constitutional claims or not, I think this one hard to oppose politically. Of course, I am for the legalization of all drugs, with conditions, but would still want drug testing mandated regardless.
    Hmmm I like the idea if it works and in theory.
    I like the if you are clean you dont have to pay for it but them who does and how much will that cost extra since im guessing 90+% arent on drugs

    How often will be the testing? and what is the form?

    Is this gonna catch people that smoke weed every now and then and not atch the meth, coke, herion and oxy heads?

    Once tested positive are they given the option of help? where does the funding for help come from.

    Just saying theres a ton of questions to be sorted out.

    Anything like this is going to have to shake out a bit. As I noted in a buried post, Kentucky has something like this as well. States with Republican Governors will share notes.

    I am still shocked at how the Obamabots try to fight this. I would tell them not to worry. They can still buy those votes with a fifth of Ripple on election day.
