Stole this from a friend’s FB and I highly agree with it!
Florida is the first state that is now going to require drug testing for welfare! Some people are crying this is unconstitutional. How is this unconstitutional but it’s completely legal that every other working person had to pass a drug test in order to support those on welfare? Let’s get Welfare back to the one’s who NEED it, not those that just WANT it.
And before you say anything there is a difference between someone seeking help for their addiction and someone choosing to indulge their addiction. No I can’t help the fact that I may get ill or other people may get ill but we can seek treatment for said illnesses and neither you nor I should suffer for the person’s unwillingness to seek treatment.
If the person is in a state run treatment program and are making an effort to beat their addiction then yes we should work with that but if a person is refusing to get help or for example as some people do choosing to be homeless we should not be subsidizing that.
These programs were created with the goal of helping people better their own lives not to support them because they don’t feel like trying.
