Proposed Welfare Drug Testing Scrapped [VIDEO]
You've most likely heard the political buzz out of Baton Rouge lately regarding proposed drug testing of welfare recipients. Yesterday this proposal died due to lack of senate support. In a 20-12 vote, Republican John LaBruzzo's attempt to combat a drug problem that he deems "rampant" came to a close.
Some opponents of the bill labeled it potentially racist, stating that it is unlawful to assume that persons on welfare use more illegal drugs than the general population. I say, I worked multiple jobs where I was required to perform drug testing and I was never, not once, offended. As long as my pay check kept direct depositing, I would keep giving samples. I hope this isn't the end of the road for this proposal.
What do you say?
