It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
"Wealth of Nations," Book V, Chapter II, Part II, Article I, pg.911
I'm willing to bet if you were to add up all of the costs for administering millions of piss tests monthly, it would be far, far more than the money saved by revoking checks to those who piss hot.
Lastly, piss tests are horribly unreliable, and can give false positives as often as 5-10% of the time. Plus there are a lot of things that can give false positives, to include many anti-depressant medications like Wellbutrin.
All in all, yeah, it'd be great to prevent people on welfare from doing drugs, but it's just not feasible.

"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
