Unless you're willing to put them all out to sea on an ice flow its pointless.
Maybe, but I haven't seen any numbers proving as much. Let's say a drug test is under $500. That would be one average check, right?

Plus, the principle of someone taking welfare money and supporting a drug habit and buying lottery tickets irks me. Maybe they will be forced to think about changing their lives. I am sickened at the thought of my hard earned money supporting a slob.
