    Even though the rules for usage and the consequences for misuse were agreed to in order to get the card in the first place?

    If they want beer and smokes that bad, they will get them. They'll trade groceries they bought for them with other individuals.

    If they're criminally inclined, they'll steal them, or steal stuff to sell to buy beer and smokes.

    You can't stop vice. Might as well just shrug and roll with it. Personally I'd be less bothered by them using some of their snap allowance for beer/smokes than stealing for it.

    What's the objective here. To provide assistance for essentials until that person can get themselves back into a position where they can provide those things for themselves. If they decide that their essentials are beer and cigarettes (now keep in mind we're not talking about meth here, it's beer and cigs) then fine. You are free to make your own stupid choices. In the long run what they decide are essentials has not impact on the outcome.

    Most of all it would be impossible to ring up on an EBT card.
    I know people who are using food EBT cards and there are ways to work around the safeguards... this isn't one of them.
    What stops the clerk from ringing up a pack of cigs as vegetables?Also in some states EBT is not just food but cash assistance as well.

    You have been duped by an ingenuous poster who has presented an invented conundrum for his own amusement.
    He is ****ing with you.
    Do you have any evidence of this?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The employee would be getting money from the transaction how?

    By the way, I knew money would be the motivator, I just didn't see how money was going to flow into the hands of the employee.
