Welfare drug test bill passes NC Senate

Welfare drug test bill passes NC Senate


GREENSBORO, NC — Senate Bill 594, which would require applicants for North Carolina’s WorkFirst Program to take and pass a drug test before receiving benefits, passed the state Senate on Monday.
WorkFirst allows adults to get cash benefits for themselves and their children as they look for work. More than 21,000 North Carolinians use the program, and more than 1200 of those are in Guilford County.
Steve Hays, with Guilford County’s Department of Social Services, said current law requires a licensed professional to evaluate applicants. That person can ask for a drug test if he or she feels it’s necessary.
SB 594 would require the testing up front for all potential recipients, and it would require the applicants to pay for that testing. If the applicant passes, according to the bill, the state would reimburse him or her. If he or she fails, there are no benefits and no reimbursement.
A Guilford County senator proposed an amendment requiring all legislators and their staff members to take and pass drug tests, as well, but that amendment failed.
Now that the bill has passed the Senate, it must pass the House and then be signed by Governor Pat McCrory to become a law.

Only a society as idiotic as our own would treat a recreational pot smoker as a greater leech of government largess than an abusive alcoholic.
I agree on the weed aspect, but I think you have it backwards regarding the poor = drug addicts point. If we test people, we will know that those receiving aid are clean. As it stands, people tend to assume the worst about everyone receiving handouts.

Anything else you want the taxpayer to fund on top of welfare?

**** that. Rehab is expensive and has a relapse rate of around 90%.
Paying for rehab is exactly what public money should be used for in society. I'd rather pay for rehab than pay for prisons.

Yeah. If the options for punishing a welfare recipient for a drug test are prison or rehab, I'd go with rehab.

That really doesn't change where I'm standing on it. Good idea in principle, but it's more expensive (by far) than just giving welfare to drug addicts. I mean let's not find ways to make the welfare system more expensive.

You're really just busting pot-heads. Most other drugs are out of your system in a few days. Drug tests aren't really that effective against the major drugs.
This is about where i'm at, i like the idea in principle but i'm not sure the potential costs are worth it to nab just one type of drug user.

I like it not because it nabs drug users, but because it screws over people that waste their money on dumb stuff like drugs
