The welfare aspect isn't moot. If a parent not on welfare tests positive for drugs in the work place then that work place should report the parent. If a parent on welfare tests positive for drugs then an investigation into the welfare of the child should ensue. Children in poverty have a great need of care and support than children outside of poverty, so if a little bit of government intervention into children known to live in poverty (through the parent's application) helps prevent these children from stagnating then I'm all for it.

I agree that some form of oversight should be in place for kids who have crap parents. Were we diverge is where that oversight should come from.
