I can't say I like the idea of signing off on career welfare recipients just because they don't do drugs.
I agree 100%. I also think they have to show that a certain percentage of it should be going to career or education development. And, it should have a set end date so they know the timeframe to work towards.

If you give and give and provide no incentive to provide on your own, you promote laziness. I see this first hand with a friend who owns a couple HUD duplexes.
