Re: 2012 Senate Bill 904 (Require drug testing of welfare applicants ) by gregtt on November 27, 2012 I agree with this law, I think any applicant for welfare shouldn't even buy Dianabol legal steroids or test positive for any kind of drugs. Public health has become finally public and i am very glad to hear that the community is dealing with its problems as it should do.
Re: 2012 Senate Bill 904 (Require drug testing of welfare applicants ) by TaterSalad on August 28, 2012 Brian Wood.............testing an applicant for drugs to "receive" an entitlement paid for buy the taxpayers who are footing the bill is alot different than a person who works and receives his own paycheck to purchase drugs. The taxpayers are not evolved in this expense. Re-Distribution of the Wealth (taxpayers money-entitlements) has to have strings attached unless you have the mindset like Barack Obama.
