Welfare Drug Tests

I see a lot of friends of mine on Facebook becoming fans of pages like this, suggesting people should have to be drug tested before getting Welfare benefits.

I simply have to say this: employees who have employer-based health insurance get a government subsidy in the form of a tax exemption (income that goes towards paying insurance doesn’t get taxed). Should people who have insurance through their employer have to get drug tested by the federal government? How often, each pay period?

Ignorance is bliss.
